Kilisitina's story

Kilisitina is a 29-year-old mother of three children. Her husband is a carpenter, and they live at her parent-in-law's house.

Kilisitina and her mother-in-law joined a group of women in the village, where they gather once in a week and make tapas. Working in a group enables them to make more than one tapas and be able to make many tapas. Their business helps with the daily expenses, while her husband covers the major ones. When their business makes a good income, they are be able to manage more of their expenses.

She joins the SPBD loan program in order to get the money to buy mulberry for her tapa making business. A home of their own is her dream.
