I am seventy three years old. I am a mother of seven and my dream is to see all of my children happy with their own families.
Challenges I’ve Faced
 Before I became a weaver my income was very small and I had difficulty paying for my basic needs.
How Weaving is Helping
 With the extra income I get from weaving, I can now cover my primary needs. Since I can no longer do strenuous activities, weaving keeps me active and moving. Weaving is very important to me and I hope it will continue throughout the years and provide future generations with the same opportunities it has provided me with.

I’m a single mom with 2 girls. My dream is to improve the life of my family.

Challenges I’ve Faced

Before the weaving arrived we always experienced financial problems due to low income. Sometimes I would think that there was no hope to overcome my problems especially since I am a single parent. Yet when weaving was introduced to me I was able to keep my faith that there are still chances to improve our lives.

How Weaving is Helping

Weaving helps me provide for my family’s needs and send my kids to school. It gives us extra income, new experiences and I can also support the needs of my kids. I hope that the company will continue to give me work through weaving. I also have more time with my family because I also taught them how to weave.
