#BehindtheSeams with our partner artisan Julia in
Sololá.
“Mercado Global has allowed us to better understand
the story and value behind our traje, our language, and
our way of life. We are able to learn the intricate weaving
techniques of our ancestors, and preserve our culture that
is slowly disappearing. Among our community, we are
the leaders and we have a respected reputation as women
artisans.”

Today we celebrate the International #DayoftheGirl and reflect on how proud we are to partner with some of the world's most talented women in Guatemala. We recognize that the empowerment of girls is key in breaking the cycle of poverty and investing in them goes beyond helping individuals to support overall community development.

Empower with us. http://buff.ly/2dhykVf
