Susana's story

Meet Susana. She is a 23-year-old mother of three children, and a wife of a farmer. They live together with her husband's parents. Susana and her mother-in-law run a handicrafts business, where they make kiekie from different materials and sell it at the local market.

After the lock-down, Susana and her mother-in-law began selling their kiekie from along the main road in town. They make approximately five to six kiekie in a week. Their business contributes to their daily living as well as the family's occasions. Susana wishes to use her loan money to buy raw materials for her business. Her vision is to continue running her business to provide financial stability for her children.
