RISING ARTISTS FROM THE UNDERGROUND - THE STORY OF IBU SUMYATI

Ibu Sumyati and her family live in a refugee home sponsored by Gerakan Kepedulian. Along with her are the refugees all over Jakarta whose home were evicted by the government due to illegal housing permit.

After years of being stay at home mothers, Ibu Sumyati and the other ladies in the refugee home decided to act on something for a better financial condition. Thus, after 5 years of learning paper quiling they decided to start an online shop and sell greeting cards made by themselves. 
The business has been going well for the past two years and has been impacting the community a lot. With Ibu Sumyati as the head of the business, the community gains financial benefits and the spirit to be independent. 

These cards made from recycled papers are sold from Rp 20.000,- up to Rp 35.000,- at HandsWork. If a small purchase of these cards can bring a smile on a mother's face, imagine what a smile on a mother's face can do to the whole family. Then try to imagine what it could to the whole community.
