Vikapu Bomba is based out of Tanzania and works with marginalized female artisans in rural communities. The social enterprise strives to help artisans in the southern highlands of Tanzania to revive their artisanal traditions, such as traditional weaving, that have been passed down for several generations. Artisans who work with Vikapu Bomba organize into producer groups and make hand-woven products such as tote bags, Iringa baskets, and home accessories; a local reed-like grass called Milulu is used for the fair trade goods. The women artisans develop and learn skills such as accounting, quality control, and group management. Income generated from the sales of Vikapu Bomba products helps the local economy and provides female artisans with sustainable income to take care of their families.
