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


A loan helped to buy mulberry bark for her tapa making business and also a pandanus to start her weaving business.


Pauline's story

Pauline is 28 years old, and she is a mother of four children and a wife of a farmer. She earns money for her family through tapa making, and once a week she joins a group of women to perform the making of tapas. Pauline also prepares soft tapas and sells those out to their tapa group and also at the local market. Her husband is her main helper, where he grows a mulberry plantation for Pauline's business, but the mulberry is not yet mature enough to be used.

She also is thinking of running a weaving business, so she applied for this loan to buy mulberry for her business and also a pandanus to start her weaving business. She does all of this just to save up enough money for the future of her children.
