THE BASKET MAKERS OF AMPANGABE
The baskets and bags are made in Ampangabe, a small village 20 km from the capital. The people live mainly from agriculture and sell their handcrafts on the streets. Mira Nature works with several families. The products are made in winter time when there is little to do on the fields. So the families have a small additional income and remain independent.
The sale of the baskets not only creates jobs-10% of the profits are also invested in local sozial projects
