"I AM JUST HAPPY. I AM HAPPY TO HAVE A JOB. I HOPE THIS PARTNERSHIP WILL GROW SO I CAN BRING MY FRIENDS AND TRAIN THEM IN BRASS JEWELRY MAKING."

Caroline has been making jewelry for 10 years, but when she lost her job she was forced to live in a rural village 7 hours away from Nairobi. Unable to find a job, Caroline was unemployed for two years until she was asked to work with Iman, head of our brass jewelry partnership.

Caroline is grateful to be able to live in Nairobi with her husband and focus on a better life. Her husband has two children, and their goal is give them both the best education.
