LOIS okello

Born in the rural town, Kitui, Lois, is named after her paternal grandmother following the area’s tribal tradition. Her grandmother, widowed at a young age, struggled to raise her six children as a single parent. Her source of income was found through the local women’s talent and skill, weaving basketry and selling produce at markets. Having watched her grandmother weave baskets, the idea of Boostani was birthed.
