'Ailine's story

Ailine and her husband have only one child. They live at 'Ailine's parents house. Currently she runs a craft business where she makes kiekie using coconut shell and hibiscus. Shown in her photo is the type of kiekie she makes. She can make any size of kiekie according to the customer's demand. 'Ailine spends her everyday making and selling kiekie to help with covering their daily expenses. Her husband is her main helper, for he helps with preparing the coconut shell and braiding the hibiscus. They have no vehicle, so they always borrow a vehicle for delivering their kiekie. 'Ailine applies for a loan to buy raw materials for her business and also a deposit for a new vehicle to use for family and business. Her next plan is to start saving up for building their own little home, so they can live freely there.
