Ready to support my family through starting a jewelry business

I need raw materials to make my necklaces and I need capital to rent a space for my shop.

My need and situation

I am a wife and mother of five children. I developed a fistula during one of my labors and I suffered with it, leaking for five years. I just got my fistula repaired and now I am healthy and dry.

My goals are to start a small jewelry business. I have experience making cross necklaces and I recently completed a business training module with an organization called Beyond Fistula.

I need raw materials to make my necklaces and I need capital to rent a space for my shop.

Meeting this need will help me because my business will generate income that I will use to feed my children, support my family, and pay school fees so that my children become educated.

Beyond Fistula will be helping to support and follow up with her.
