A loan helped to buy mulberry for her tapa making business.


Lucynita's story

Meet Lucynita. She is a 19 year old single lady, and she lives together with her parents and younger siblings of five.

Lucynita helps her mother in a tapa making business, in order to provide for their family. They join a group of women in their village, and together they make tapas once in every week. Lucynita prepares their soft tapa for the next tapa making, enabling her mother to do other important chores. Her younger siblings are still in school, and Lucynita supports them to do better in their education and not drop out from school like her. She applied for a loan to buy mulberry for her tapa making business.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
