Rwandan baskets

Esperance has recently completed a course in basket weaving. This is a sample of some of her work. We want to help her get set up with her own business in the New Year. The basket with the lid is woven from very fine Aloe Vera fiber, takes about a week to make and sells for $10 here in Rwanda. Esperance is supporting her 4 children while her husband is doing community service.
