Tapu's story

Tapu is a 28-year-old woman who is married, with three children. She has a small garden where she grows taro, taamu, yams, and bananas that she can sell in her community. She has two years of experience with this business. Tapu has requested a loan to buy more tiapula (an underground plant stem serving as a storage organ by some plants), a shovel, some bush knives, a rake, an axle and filing, and some fertilizer for her garden. She plans to use her profits to improve her family's assets. Tapu is a new member of South Pacific Business Development (SPBDA) in 2012.
