Lamona's story

Lamona is 40 and a separated mother of three children. She lives with her children in their own home that her brother purchased for them when her husband left.

Lamona raises her children with money she earns from making tapas. She meets with a group of women in her village, and together they make tapas. When her tapas are ready, Lamona ships them to her brother and his wife overseas, and they sell them to earn good money for her and her kids.

Lamona always wants to be sure that she can meet her children's needs with her earnings. She is applying for a loan to hire four women to help her design and make her tapas.
