ABOUT THE ARTISANS
Laxmi Maharjan is a traditional weaver who never went to school but dreamed of sending her children to school. Raised in a culture that never allowed her to handle or control any of the money made from her craft, she understood that to be able to send her kids to school and pull her family out of poverty she needed to control the money from her work. In 1984 she discovered a Nepalese fair-trade organization, which would pay her directly for her work and help her set up a savings account. Now more than 30 years later her daughter and 2 sons have college educations.
