Artisan Profile


Jenifer started work with us when her family was evicted from their home after being unable to pay their rent. She had previously been selling used clothes in the local market, but it was difficult to make enough money to provide for her family. She has been an artisan with GORP for 4 years where she’s learned basketry and jewelry making.  She has a positive, upbeat attitude and does well working as a team. Working as an artisan for Grain of Rice Project has allowed her to pay school fees for her kids, pay rent, improve her living standards and gain career experience. Jenifer’s goal is to save money to start her own beauty shop as well as build her own house.
