For many women living in the lush southern highlands, life centers around subsistence farming, cooking, cleaning and caring for children. Women can weave baskets between their other duties, working daily to earn money to pay school fees, buy food, procure farming supplies and contribute to savings. When a woman has money of her own to use or share, she has greater influence over her life and future.
