My name is Damaris I am 74 years old, I sell casava to the Kageno school and use the money to raise my four orphaned grandchildren.
My main source of income comes from weaving and repairing baskets, a skill I learned in Kageno’s craft program. It is a skill that suits me, as I do not like to be idle.
My baskets are high quality and sell quickly in the town center. I also receive large orders from stores who resell them. Kageno helped me with a microloan to buy materials, which helped me to fill large orders and make a profit. I am grateful to Kageno for teaching me a skill and offering support.
