but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy mulberry and a fakapa machine for her business.

Palu's story

Palu is a mother to five children. She is married to a farmer and they live in their own home. Once a week, she joins a group of women in their village and together they make tapas. Together they make more than one tapas and then sell them to earn income for their families.

Palu self-designs her tapas then sells them to her local and overseas customers. She is a very hardworking mother and her husband and children help with softening her hard mulberry. Her business runs very well and the only factor that affects her business is softening her hard mulberry. Palu thinks of using this loan to purchase a softening machine (fakapa machine) to help with her business and also buy mulberry for her tapa making.

To educate her children into a brighter future is her wish and she will run her business to make her dream came true.
