Mercado Global

These products are made in Guatemala by one of the world’s most marginalized populations – rural indigenous women. The proceeds from these items provide business education and leadership programs to help women become successful business owners. When these women turn these skills into income, they provide nutritious food to their families and invest in their children's education — and the community breaks the cycle of poverty.  This program is unique because it focuses on change from the ground up by providing education, tools, and access to international markets so that women can build their own businesses and invest in their own communities.
