Lavinia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy mulberry for her tapa making business.

Lavinia's story

Lavinia makes tapas and sells it out to earn money for her family.

They have two children and her husband is suffering from health problems, so it is only her that provides for their daily living.

She joins a group of women in their village where once in a week they perform the making of tapas. Her daughter helps her with preparing of the soft tapas, and also with the designing of the tapas.

She is going to use this loan that she applied for to buy mulberry for her tapa making business. Lavinia counts all the hardship she faces as a stepping stone to her success.

She believes that if she continues with her business, she will be able to improve her family's life and educate her children for a better life.
