She was unable to attend school, and for four years now she has been selling lappa (traditional clothes) around her community and at the market. She started this business with small goods (lappa) from her friend as sell-pay (to take the goods on credit, sells the goods, pay the principle, and have the profit) and she learned this trade from her friends.
