Makerita's story

Makerita is a 63-year-old mother with nine children. She owns and operates a small business of selling elei printing materials at the market to earn a living. Makerita needs a loan to buy rolling materials, paint color, paint brush, elei design, containers, a printing machine, and a table to assist her in running the business. She has been doing this for more than a year. Makerita hopes to build a small elei shop in her village. She became a member of SPBD in 2016.
