Salote's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy raw materials for her handicraft business.

Salote's story

Salote is a mother of five children. Her husband works as a farmer and they own their own home.

She makes kiekies using materials such as hibiscus and coconut, which she sells at the local market to earn income for their living. Her husband and children help her by braiding the materials to make it easier for her to make the kiekies.

On average, she makes three to four kiekies in a week. Sometimes she exports some of the kiekies to overseas customers.

She is hoping to use her loan money to purchase more materials for her kiekie business.
