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

A loan helped to buy mulberry to make tapas (cloth) and also to renovate their shop where they make it.

Pasepa's story

Pasepa is the leader in a small group of women who make tapas (cloth) together. She is a single mother. Her daughter attends the university. Pasepa pays for her tuition fees with the income she earns from her business. They live in their own home. Behind their home is a little hall where Pasepa and the women work one day a week at making tapas. When her tapas are ready, Pasepa's daughter helps her design them before they are sold. Pasepa has local and overseas customers. The little tapas making hall needs renovation. Pasepa applied for this loan to buy mulberry to make tapas and to also help with the renovation of the hall. A brighter future for her daughter is her only priority.
