"Our first visit was to the young women of the Dian Fossey center. They had learned painting and were doing crochet projects for sale at the local market. The fact that it took a crocheter over a day to complete an item she could sell for just $1.00 did not seem to deter her. Once the cost of the yarn was deducted, the crocheter would net approximately $.65. These women should be able to make at least triple that figure when selling goods made on the machine and they are already thinking about sales and marketing strategies for their goods."
