Merewai's story

The handicraft talents of Merewai gives her an attractive business opportunity. She loves to create printed and tie and dye fabrics and seeks a loan to buy raw materials to start making them on a commercial basis.

Her family is fully supportive of her plans. Together they hope to earn enough to support their family and provide more financial security for their future.
