Clippings or capital, what do you see?

An Egyptian Enactus team saw a way to turn cottonwood, a byproduct of Egypt’s thriving cotton industry that’s normally discarded, into potpourri. The students teach at-risk women how to make and market the potpourri, giving them the security of a sustainable livelihood. How much income does each family make per month?
