Mercado Global empowers indigenous women to overcome poverty and become agents of change in their communities.
Mercado Global’s partner artisans represent one of the world’s most marginalized populations – rural indigenous women. Mercado Global provides donor-funded business education and leadership programs to help women become successful business owners. They then connect them with large-scale sales opportunities so they can turn these skills into income. With this income, artisans provide nutritious food to their families and invest in their children’s education — and the community breaks the cycle of poverty.
