Allen is a widow with 7 children. 3 Sets of twins. Hopes for the future – all kids to go to school. She can do almost all styles so always gets an order, always gets paid straight away. In 2008 Lorna brought her into the group. She stopped school in Primary 5. KMP helped her feeding her children. Hopes – orders increase, open small business at home, retail shop. Ideas to improve KMP – big shop in town so more customers, need to sell more jewellery themselves.
Resty has 8 children; 5 are her sons and 1 daughter and 2 granddaughters. It’s all about her kids. Can afford to send her children to University. Also has a small shop outside her home selling groceries like tomatoes, sugar, charcoal, banana leaves for cooking. Says thank you to everyone for buying her beads. She is a widow. She is one of the founders.
Aidah has 3 kids. Older both go to school. Has a husband. She went to Senior 4. Has joined KMP since 2005. Lorna taught her how to make beads at home for 2 months and then joined the group. Benefits mostly for everyday life, books for school etc.
