She has even begun a program of her own, teaching women how to knit to generate profits for their own families.
Beth's dreams live in the scarves she knits. Ever since she was a little girl, Beth tells us that all of her artistic inspirations start with her dreams. A single mother of 3, she works to make their dreams a reality as well. Full of mirth and laughter, she keeps all of the mothers happy through thick and thin.

Lucy is the mother of eight, with eleven grandchilren, and works hard to ensure their bright futures.
