I was so pale when I arrived, some local women grabbed me and put this natural sunscreen on my face. It's a paste made of ground up bark. It really works-- made for some really interesting tan lines. Also, everyone kept telling me how beautiful I was with it on so obvs had to post! #myanmar #twante #sunscreen #travel

This father and daughter are working together in their workshop in Twante township in Myanmar, near #Yangon. The town of #Twante is known for its #pottery industry. For centuries, the people of Twante have lived off their pottery #skills. Even today, their pots are of huge demand throughout Myanmar, but a lot of the younger generation travels to neighboring Yangon to do other jobs. They usually put the earthen pots to dry outdoors, but move them under the thatched roofs of their homes where sunlight hits when the weather is unpredictable. This family was working hard to earn between K800,000-K900,000 per month ($600-700 US), with a little under half – around K350,000 – going to support two grandparents.
Judge Emily Epstein from @theatlantic remarked of the photo, "The thing that stands out to me here is the tenderness in the work being done, and the idea of passing on your skills and your business to your #family." Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) – family #businesses, independent #shopkeepers and other small #entrepreneurs – are often the largest #employers in developing countries. Many of these firms cite limited access to financial services as one of their main constraints to growth. Increasing financing for #MSMEs can therefore lead to larger and more profitable businesses.

The Myanmar town of #Twante has been known for its thriving pottery industry. Even today, residents can be seen sitting on wooden stools beneath the thatched roofs of their homes, placing lumps of soft clay onto wheels and shaping it with the gentle press of their fingertips into pots for cooking, storing water, preserving fish or flowers.
