Maybank Women "Eco-Weavers" programme is a flagship economic independence initiative that connects ASEAN’s heritage through the ancient art of textile weaving in Indonesia, Laos and Cambodia. Through the promotion of environmentally-friendly practices whilst economically empowering and creating financial inclusion for women through access of financial services, the programme aims to create a sustainable weaving industry. It encourages the beneficiaries to contribute to their communities through exchange of ideas and experiences, which in turn propagates the income increase and financial independence that would improve beneficiary’s accessibility to education, healthcare and economic opportunities.
