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

Makasini's story

This is Makasini. She is 29 years old, married with only one child. They live in their own home, with her widowed mother. Makasini runs a business of handicrafts, where she makes kiekie, waist string and some other products from the raw materials of nature. Her mother helps her with her business. When her products are ready, she usually posts them on social media for more followers. She also sends them overseas, but due to the lockdown she has to sell them locally. Her business is her family's main source of income.

She is hoping to use her loan money to buy raw materials for her business in order to support her family.

This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
