Inspired by Bonakele's original Biography Basket.

Bonkele left school at 16, when she became pregnant. She was depressed about this, but her daughter gave her joy. She learnt to weave from her mother and joined Gone Rural to support her child. Bonakele has a good relationship with her husband, but he does not have permanent employment. There are many ups and downs in their life. She wishes for more orders of woven vases so she could work more herself. This is her prayer for the future.
