The folks over at Envia emailed us these photos of what our hostesses did with the small, no interest loans they received. Ludvina got a lot of wool which she's probably going to dye.
Sofia bought beeswax to make candles. The money we paid to take the tour of their businesses (and homes, as these were all home based businesses) generated these loans. Feels good to be women artists supporting other women artists.
And here's Sofia's sister, Sarah with some aprons and other clothing she bought to sell in her tienda. So that's what some of our tourist dollars generated. To find out more about envia and the fine work they do click here.http://www.envia.org/
