A loan helped her to buy supplies to continue her embroidery work.


Shirete's story

Shirete is 58 years old and a widow who lives with her son and his family. She loves taking care of her nephew and niece, who make her very happy. Her son works in agriculture and grows crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and paprika and he sells them in local markets. Shirete and her daughter-in-law work from their home making embroidery and earn a decent income doing this. Shirete is happy to be able to work and help her family, but needs a loan to buy materials to continue her work. She is very optimistic and hopes to continue to grow and sell more. She wants her family to have decent living conditions and works late at night to make enough embroidery to sell and generate income. She is very grateful for the support of Kiva lenders.
