The Abumurava Cooperative was begun by a core group of women in October 2007 as a forum for working together in order to provide mutual support, development, and increased standard of living. Many of the women have struggled with illness, poverty, and loneliness due to HIV/AIDS. Through the group, they have been slowly able to use and improve their skills in weaving in order to better provide for themselves and their families. The time they spend working together provides significant moral support for the members of Abumurava, who are working to overcome discouragement and hoping to find new markets in the coming year.
