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

A loan helped to buy mulberry for her tapa-making business and finish some house renovations.

Kelesi's story

Kelesi is 37 years old, single, and lives with her parents and her younger siblings at their parents' house. She and her mother together with her sisters run a tapa-making business, where once a week they join a group of women for making tapas. Together they make different types and sizes of tapas, then sell them to local and overseas customers.

Kelesi also prepares soft tapas and sells them at the local market. She believes that with this business, little by little, she can improve the quality of life of her family. Kelesi requested a loan, which she will use to buy mulberry for her tapa-making business and to help her family finish some house renovations.
