Hehenga's story

Hehenga earns money for her family making handicrafts ─ kiekie and waist strings using raw materials of nature, mainly coconut husk. She's the mother of three and wife of a carpenter.

Usually she displays and sells her work at her home, but due to more customers, Hehenga rented a room at the local market and sells her products there.

Products made from coconut materials tend to be very expensive. She makes good earnings for her family. Her business helps her husband provide for their kids. Hehenga is applying for a loan to buy raw materials for her craft business.
