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.

- 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"
