This purse is named after Hadijah: Hadijah Magola is in her fifties. She is unsure of her birthdate, which is actually quite common. She was married at age 15 and had seven children. There are six grandchildren three of which live with her as their parents have disappeared. These children attend the H.E.L.P. School. Her husband is a mechanic but is ill now. They can’t always pay the loan on their house so the money from beads will help with keeping their home.
