A loan helped to buy mulberry for her tapa (a patterned cloth made from the bark of the mulberry tree) making business for it is urgent.
Loisi is a mother and a grandmother who makes a living through her retail store and her tapa (a patterned cloth made from the bark of the mulberry tree) making business. Her loans are repaid very well with these two businesses, and she still strives for more. She applied for this loan because she needs mulberry for her tapa-making business and she needs it urgently. She just receive an order for four 52 feet tapas from one of her customers overseas. Her retail store is located in their own home where villagers visit and buy goods from there. For her tapa making, she joined a group of women in the village and together they make the tapas. Even that her age does not get any younger, she still manages to do her business and fulfill her responsibility as a mother and a grandmother.
