Nuna Begum making a rug using a hand loom at the Mornia Kik Rug Factory in Doani Villlage where she works alongside 25 other rural village women making rugs for German textile discount shop Kik. Over 400 women have been economically empowered through the CARE Bangladeshi WONDER Project. The WONDER Project's goals were to create sustainable income and employment opportunities for extremely poor women by training them in rug production for export. The women now earn about 4000 Bangladeshi Taka (GBP 33) per month.
