4 Star Chicagoan helping refugee women

CHICAGO -- The Loom program provides refugee women in Chicago with an opportunity to design, create and sell their own products to help contribute to their families.

The program meets every Tuesday and products that are made include scarves, hats, bags and jewelry all inspired by their own cultures. The loom artisans are also given the opportunity to learn new skills and participate in classes on financial literacy. The women in the program, who come from all over the world, are given the chance to be part of a creative community while making unique handmade products.
