Iuni is 32 years old and married with one child. She would like to start a small business, selling 'elei' (block printed) materials such as dresses and others. In order to do this, Iuni needs a loan to buy new equipment like paints, clothing materials, spray, a roller, a sketch board, etc. for her 'elei' designs. She hopes to use her profits to extend her house.
