Grad student helps women sell homemade items
For Pinar Arpaci, just thinking about the two Turkish women she helped earn college degrees still gives her goosebumps. It began back in 2011 when Arpaci, graduate student in education, created a program called Prodigy Stream. The program aims to empower women living in Istanbul, Turkey.
Prodigy Stream allows the women to sell their homemade crafts on the online site, Etsy, to provide revenue for their families. By selling their products online, the women are exposed to a much more global market than if they were to only sell their products at the Bazaar.
