Leah already did some research on how high the cost for the material and the tools would be. At the next big market in Karatu she wants to buy some material for the decoration of the masai blanket. She wants to cut the blanket into pieces so she can sell them as smaller blankets that people can use to stay warm.
Leah´s main challenge is the money she needs to start her activities. She asked her husband for some money but at the moment he cannot give it to her because he has to pay the school fee for their children. So for now she does not know when she would get some money. If she would start a small business making the jewelry at home and sell them to neighbors and friends, she would need 50.000 – 70.000 TZS or about 23-32 USD. For a proper room and proper tools the cost would be 300.000 TZS or about 138 USD.
