Ladies from our church weaving baskets

10 ladies from our church continue to work 2 days per week to earn some cash by weaving baskets. On other days they look for payed employment of work in their gardens. The income from the baskets is used to help pay school fees and to buy shoes for their children. It takes about 3 days to make one basket and they sell for between 7 and 10 dollars depending on the quality. All of the money goes directly to the ladies. So far we have sold all our baskets to visitors from abroad. We are praying for a more permanent market.
