“I came here as a hardgoods artisan. I then learned how to make leather bags and accessories. The growth has been good, and I now have children and my own house. I’ve learned a lot here. I joined in 2007 and initially, I was trained under many different artisans. I became more creative and my capabilities increased with time. Today I feel like I can make anything. It is fun to do all this.” -Mumtaz
