Madagascar Paper Business

Here's a fun tidbit featuring an entrepreneur from Africa: The above picture is of a woman in Madagascar who started her own paper-making business. She and her family take wood bark to create specialty gift paper for tourists to purchase. Products also include cards and boxes made from the specialty gift paper. This woman's small business exemplifies the kind of DIY endeavors that help boost rural economies.
