Triumph.. and tragedy
In the past week, we have received 2 major orders from new customers in the U.S.! This will considerably raise the average artisan income for our members and will also bring us much closer to our goal of self-sustainability by 2013.
The only thing keeping our entire staff from jumping for joy all day every day at the office is that fact that one of our artisans was brutally killed last week, her body found burnt and decapitated in the bush days after her disappearance. While the motives behind her murder are unknown, police have arrested 4 suspects, and it is likely that land ownership issues are behind the crime. She was one of the best weavers in the group and also had an extremely warm personality and strong leadership skills. She will be missed.
