Beatrice

Weaving has always been Beatrice full-time-job. Before she joined in Kingongi women’s group in 2010, she sells her traditional baskets in the marketplace. Her plan is to open a kiosk for basic home care products and by a cow. Beatrice earns two to three thousand Kenyan Shillings a month, after weaving three small size baskets a week. She weaves mostly in afternoon, after she is done with her homestead chores. Beatrice’s favorite meal is rice and stew.
