Aristotles's story

Meet Aristotles. She is 47 years old, a mother to five children and a wife to a farmer. Aristotles runs a sewing business, where she can sew uniforms, dresses and also covers for chairs, tables and many more things. She has her own little sewing room at their home, and her sewing helps her husband provide for their family.

What she wears at the moment is one of her own puletaha designs. Puletaha is known to be the female formal wear for special occasions, such as church and others. Aristotles can sew for different sizes, and she also sews her children's dresses.

Aristotles is applying for a loan to buy fabrics of different styles for her sewing. Her dream is to have her own little tailoring store one day. Help Aristotles make her dream come true.
