Possible funding source?!

Hi Barbara - There's a really great organization called FINCA that specializes in giving small low-interest loans to poor 3rd-world women who want to create their own businesses. If you haven't already checked into it here's the website: http://www.villagebanking.org It may even be possible to set up a village bank just for Kilim women!

Oops... Found out there isn't a branch in Turkey. Sorry about that. There must be other organizations out there like this? Anybody know of one?
