Most of the inhabitants of Alasora, a small community in Madagascar, rely on work in the rice fields to support their families. Unfortunately, their primary source of income is seasonal, and they struggle to make ends meet for the remainder of the year.
To combat poverty and help their neighbors generate extra revenue, three women founded Alize Sarl Landy. By training men and women in the crafts of weaving and embroidery, these dedicated individuals slowly began to improve the condition of life in Alasora. As it grew, this fair trade group began teaching artisans how to market their products and set up a program to help pay for their children’s schooling.
