Tati is 49 years old and lives in Gilimanuk, West Bali. She is married and has three children, and they are all still in school. Her husband is a goverment officer. She has a textile business (embroidery business). She has been in this business for five years.
With this effort she was able to provide jobs for women in her neighborhood. She makes bags, clothes and other types of ladies' accessories sold to Denpasar. She needs this loan to buy yarn and needles. She receives an order in large enough quantities. She hopes these efforts will be more advanced, could provide jobs for many women and certainly provide welfare for her family.
