Laxmi: Seamstress from Nepal



Laxmi Tara, one of the artisans who creates these gorgeous scarves, lives in the small village of Tokha on the outskirts of Kathmandu Valley. She is in her early 20s (Nepalis often do not know their actual age as birthdays are not traditionally celebrated). She came to Cheppu of Himalaya, a partner organization of Jesus' Economy, for a micro credit loan to open her own tailoring shop. Since that time, Laxmi has set up her own tailoring business and has been very successful in her local village.
