Here, they visit the small shepherding village of Tarmilat, which they visited primarily as tourists helping to stimulate the economy.
In the village, the girls boosted the economy by purchasing not only food (tajine chicken and couscous) but hand-woven purses and henna tattoos.
The purses are products of a weaving project that enables the women of the village to keep all the money earned through the selling of their products; no money made during these sales is filtered through a middleman.
Here, Sara and Ellie present the goods that they purchased in Tarmilat and display their recently acquired henna tattoos.
