Kasanita's story

Kasanita is a talented weaver and proud of her work. At 41, she has 4 children. Her husband’s wage is barely enough to meet all their needs.

She serves many tourist visitors to her island with her handicrafts.

One of the challenges faced by Kasanita is having no shop to operate her business. Having a business place would allow her to move freely about running her own affairs.

She will use her loan to rent a shop in the city to serve customers publicly. And also purchase the best quality dried leaves and materials to weave her decorative and functional mats.

With a better retail outlet, she hopes to boost sales so that she can pay for her children’s schooling.
