THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Tribe Alive

Country: Honduras

As the sole provider for her family in a region torn asunder with poverty, violence, and natural disaster, Dilcia’s resilience and resourcefulness have put her on a path of entrepreneurship.

In 2005, after a flash flood nearly took her home, Dilcia started her own business through Mi Esperanza’s micro-loan program. But it was not long before a local gang demanded she pay a “war tax” in order to keep her business. The setback impeded her profits enough that she was forced to close her doors.

But Dilcia persevered. Determined to establish a means of providing for her family, she enrolled in a Mi Esperanza sewing course and poured her energy in this new direction with gusto. Not only did she finish at the top of her class, she was chosen to undergo a special training in fabric dyeing. The thoughtful cloth tab protecting your new studs is but one sample of her proud work.
