Project Details

Seeks for women who have entrepreneurial spirit and wants to improve their economic situation. Diverse indigenous communities are supported to convert their talent.

- Who we are?
We are an organisation that helps women creating an entrepreneurial perspective that wants to improve their economic situation by encouraging the sales of products that are handmade. 

- What we do?
We convert talent into income for home and we break the vicious circle of poverty to build a better Mexico.

- Where we work? 
We work on San Cristobal de Las Casas in Chiapas, it´s a safe place full of culture, nature and landscapes.

- Our history
The history  begins in 2013, when I travel from Monterrey, my hometown, to Chiapas for the first time. I was traveling with a backpack, a good book, my diary and very eager to clear my life for a while. I found in Chiapas a place that captivated me and its people dazzled me. I discovered a magical place, full of culture, traditions and a unique energy.

Walking around the state I noticed the poverty in which many people live and also observed n the region how hardworking women are. Sitting in the main square of San Cristóbal de las Casas and having asked about the interest rate of a microcredit in the region, I was struck by lightning.

I realized that in Chiapas I could consolidate everything I like to do: teach, learn, undertake, share and grow. That's when I decided to start this new project.

It has been a path full of learning, of meeting with myself and with very valuable people who have joined the cause.

Our mission: "The possibility to make profits and save money" 
Our vision: "We are developing empowered and productive women in order to build a better Mexico"

Social Impact

Our social project attends poverty and fight against it by turning the skills of the indigenous women of Chiapas into income for their households. 

 We get indigenous women to use their knowledge and abilities to improve their living conditions by providing goods to start a productive project so they could do something and feel useful, also we monitor their projects and as an organistion we participate together with the indigenous women also we promote cultural exchange tourism to their communities so that cash flow reaches them.

We have achieve in collaboration with our volunteer's a better quality of life for indigenous women by putting together their work and passion for handcrafts and also helping them to sell all what they do.
