Mati, 23, lives with her husband and one very cheerful daughter, who is their source of joy for their marriage. Mati works as a tailor at home, making clothes for women and children. Much of the work she does is to order, but she also makes blouses, skirts and other items to sell to earn extra money.

Mati is requesting a loan from Yehu to buy fabric in assorted colors, with various prints and styles, to make more articles of clothing, especially for the upcoming end-of-year season, so that she can be well-stocked with clothes to sell.
