Baeh, one of the youngest artisans we work with, is 24 years old, a mother of one, and a hardworking weaver with a great sense of humor. Weaving gives Baeh a source of income that she uses to feed and support her family. Because she is able to earn income by weaving from home, she can take care of her baby herself instead of bringing her child with her into the nearby jungle to forage for food or plants and animals to sell for income. In the near future, Baeh plans to take out a loan from the Weaving Fund to purchase raw cotton and silk to weave scarves to sell to local markets.
