Makitalena's story

Makitalena 35 sells parcels, pastries and beverages for a living. She leaves home at the early hour of 6 a.m. daily to make her way to the local market where she sets up her merchandise and gets ready to start of the day.

People from all walks of life usually stop by her stall to get a piece of her freshly baked pies and scones to go with their morning tea at work during the day. Now she is in need of some financial support mainly since the passing of her spouse, she is now the sole bread winner for her family.

Any financial support would go towards the purchasing of storage containers/wrappers, ingredients for the pastries and a new baking oven to cope with the increasing demands from the public.
