Hi Elizabeth! Great question and one that's important to ask! Approximately 40-50% of the sale price goes to the artisan.
Hammock weaving provides a 650% increase in income over slash-and-burn agriculture, allowing each weaver to earn in a week what an entire family would earn from a month of back-breaking field labor. In their provice, weavers can even earn as much as a college-educated teacher.
If interested, you can learn more about some of our artisans here:
We also have more information available here: http://www.kiva.org/partners/274
Of course, we'll be following this thread in case you have any other questions too.
Thanks for supporting our campaign!
Do Good. Relax.
