Most of Ganesh Himal’s knit items are knit by women in their homes while their children are in school. Organized into small neighborhood groups, one woman is elected as a team leader and is responsible for delivering wool and orders weekly. She then will pick up the finished product and deliver them to Pema-la. Pema-la then does the finishing, lining and final quality control. For Nepali women it is vital to be able to work in their homes while caring for their children and at the same time gain income. This income gives them a larger voice in their homes and allows many to keep their children in school.
