Melecia is 46 years old and she is married. She did not have the opportunity to study, but she has 4 children who are studying. She makes a living making baskets. She started this business together with her husband and she now has 8 years of experience. She organized a group of women in order to apply for a loan which will be used to buy materials consisting of ribbons of different colors and designs.
