Mercado Global Artisans are catalysts for change. Their work itself is a statement, one that challenges the status quo and promises a better future.
Despite their individual determination, these women know that to overcome centuries of gender inequality and financial insecurity they need a support system. That is why they band together through co-ops, allowing them to pool their resources and knowledge to support each other to achieve their goals and uplift their communities.
Now, through Compañeras and Compañeros de Mercado (“Partners of Mercado”), you can become a part of the support system for these co-ops to ensure that the future is created in their vision. A future where women are equal, families do not go to sleep hungry at night, and children - especially girls - are enrolled in school.
Joining our network of Compas will give you behind-the-scenes access to Mercado’s work, allowing you to see the impact your sustainable support is making on the women and communities we serve.
Become a Compa. Support women led co-ops. Change the future.
