Anita's story

Anita lives in Atsabe. She is creative in making East Timor traditional woven cloth call TAIS. After she finishes making them she will sell them in the market. She enjoys her activities.

She said living in a town makes it very competitive to earn money unless you have an activity that is profitable enough to survive. When looking for ways to earn money, Anita came up with an idea to open a local service for all people. She opened her business in 2013 with her own working capital. She is applying for a loan of $1000 from KIF, SA because she wants to buy more materials like colored thread, cotton, and sewing needles.
