Malia's story

This is Malia. She is a 31-year-old mother to her three children.

Malia and her mother-in-law join a group of women in making tapas and, together, they perform the making of tapas once every week. They make different types and sizes of tapas, design them, and then sell them to local and overseas customers.

Her husband supports her business by planting her own mulberry plantation, as shown in the photo. They also have a side business that helps with their living and it is a farming business. The crops are sent overseas and, also, used for family food.

Malia and her husband have their new land and are still working on construction. She applied for this loan to help with the construction of her house. She wants to build a home for her children to live and grow up freely.
