The female artisans in La Esperanza, Guatemala create and sell colorful, handcrafted products for markets around the world. Sales of these fair trade goods directly supports a self-run cooperative, a kindergarten through 6th grade school and a daycare. The success of this cooperative has also fueled the development of a health clinic, tutoring program, and a local bank while the women learn leadership opportunities and greater independence. While poverty, crime, and violence are a daily threat throughout their neighborhoods, the more than 60 women in this cooperative find not only solidarity in a safe space but also a community of love, hope and purpose that aspires to produce generational improvements for themselves and their families.
