A loan helped to buy raw materials for her handicrafts business.

Losaline's story

This is Losaline. She is 32 years old and married with six children.

She is running a business of handicraft where she makes kiekie, waist string, traditional dancing costumes and accessories from raw materials of nature.

She is self-employed. Her children help her sometimes with the braiding of the materials when they are available.

She has her own marketing room at the main local market in town, where her products are being displayed every day for customers' view.

She has been doing this business ever since she got married, and it has been her family's main source of income.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy raw materials for her handicraft. The more materials, the more products produced.

Her vision for the future is for her children to finish their education and have a better life.
