Dorothe

Rwanda
Basket Weaver

My name is Dorothe and I am 18 years old. I was born into a family with three children and we all stay at home to help my mother. I had to stop my studies because my mother was no longer able to pay my school fees. After stopping my studies, I learned how to weave baskets. Now that I sell my baskets to All Across Africa, I am able to help my mother pay for our health insurance, pay the school fees for my younger sisters, and resolve other family expenses. In the near future, I plan to use my savings to buy a cow so that I can invest in my future.
