Soap Success!

30 11 2009

This past weekend, I made soap with the women of my neighboring compounds as an income generating activity.  Three CEG aged girls will sell the soap for 200cfa and slightly larger pieces for 250cfa and use the profits to re-invest in materials to make another batch. This initial batch was started with a micro loan from me that will be paid back over the next 5 batches of soap. . Here are a few of the pics of the process. Real article to come soon!
