Lirie's story

Lirie is a talented seamstress who hasn’t gone to any school to learn the skills she has been practicing during these past ten years.

Lirie advised: "My husband passed away long ago, leaving me helpless and hopeless. I was only 26 and now I had to care for four little ones. I did not know what to do. I was lost in my grief for a long time. My whole world was shattered and I could not let go of the grief. It was strong and I suffered, no doubt. But at the same time I had to get up and think about my children, who needed to be fed and educated. This is what made me start the clothing alterations at first and then gradually I got to the sewing activity. I stitch curtains, drapes, sheets and pillow cases and some other things”.

Lirie is pictured with some her her finished items. With this loan, Lirie would like to buy some fabric and other raw materials.
