Angels of the Amazon has provided the local communities of the Tahuayo River with several sustainable economic initiatives. Dolly Beaver organized Cooperativa de Artesanos "El Huacamayo.” This cooperative supports the local women of the villages in creating traditional arts and crafts while still using renewable resources such as palm fibers in their work. While keeping their artistic traditions alive with the production of these baskets, the women artisans are able to generate a much needed sustainable economy for their villages. Since the baskets are woven by the local women, their economic empowerment has helped them find a voice in their communities thus uplifting their self-esteem and self-worth in their villages and in their homes. With the help of tourism provided by Amazonian Expeditions, the women’s cooperative, now has a viable market place in their local villages.

Another important economic initiative of AoA is to train and hire local villagers to act as conservation assistants to the Area de Conservacion Regional Comunal de Tamshiyacu-Tahuayo, the most mega-diverse region in the entire Amazon. The locals are then paid by contributions by Amazonia Expeditions to maintain the trail grid and to provide a continuing census of wildlife populations.
