The women of the Zamuka cooperative are focused and determined. They are among the best weavers in the region, and have made the significant step of taking on weaving as their profession rather than a side job. The women meet together daily, working and exchanging advice on everything from weave quality, to child rearing, to good health practices. Their income from weaving means that they can employ their neighbors, support the local suppliers of raw materials, give business to the community market vendors, and invest in the health of their land and their families. Their children have increased access to nutrition, health, and education. Their husbands have grown in their respect and appreciation.
