THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Mercado Global
Paulina Chiroy Pixtay a member of the Casario La Fe cooperative, has been working in weaving and jewelry with Mercado Global for four years. This year, Paulina particularly enjoyed the technical trainings in jewelry production. “I enjoyed having learned how to make new types of jewelry!” she says.
Paulina is grateful for the work that Mercado Global provides. With this income, Paulina is happy that she will not have to worry about how to afford a healthy meal for her daughter, Jessica (3 years old). Paulina is also happy that she can afford to send Jessica to school, an opportunity she herself never had.
Marcado Global partners with artisans from one of the world’s most marginalized populations – rural indigenous women. Mercado Global provides donor-funded business education and leadership programs to help women become successful business owners. We then connect them with large-scale sales opportunities so they can turn these skills into income. With this income, artisans provide nutritious food to their families and invest in their children's education — and the community breaks the cycle of poverty.
