When struck with a family emergency, the market for these beautiful wooden products encourages farmers to sell high quality crafts through the cooperative instead of cut additional trees to sell at a low price. It may take a minimum of two days to make a paddle, but it requires little wood and encourages the farmers to save their trees for future craft production. Currently, if a farmer decides to cut a tree and sell its wood to intermediaries, they may only earn $6 for a large beam, totaling up to $200 per tree. By making crafts for sale through the Kallari cooperative from the excess stumps and limbs from other trees, they can earn much more than by cutting down a live tree.
