Luseane's story

Luseane is a young mother with three children who generates income for her family through making and selling out tapas. Her kids are all under age and staying with Luseane at home. Her husband is her only helper in preparing her soft tapas and caring for their children.

Luseane and her mother in law joined a group of women in their village where once in a week they gather and make more than one tapas. Luseane makes tapas and sells out mainly to her overseas customers. She has more customers but she can hardly keep in time with them.

With this loan, she can be able to not only purchase efficient mulberry for her tapa making and also hire women to make tapas and prepare her soft tapas for her. Her dream is to build a better life for her family through the work of her hand.
