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

A loan helped to buy bark cloth to sell.

Sylivia's story

Sylivia is a married woman who lives in the outskirts of Kyotera town. She was attracted to joining the traditional bark cloth business because a relative has reaped big from the same and the bark cloth was available in a nearby location; yet the market was equally available ranging from musicians who use them during traditional dances to the city merchants who weave different crafts out of them. With the loan, she will buy directly from the harvesters of the bark cloth which will make it cheaper and profitable.
