BENEFITING: MERCADO GLOBAL INC
MOVE #WOMENFORWARD THIS INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY. Receive a special-edition Olga wrap bracelet to stand with women like Olga in their fight out of poverty.
Every day in rural Guatemala, and all over the world, women face extreme challenges to earning enough money to feed and educate their children.
“My children needed clothes and food; sometimes there was money, sometimes there wasn’t. I wanted to be able to support the family but there was no work," says Olga, an indigenous Kaqchikel Mayan and mother of two.
Today, as a Mercado Global artisan partner, Olga is selling her products to top international retailers and is able to put her two daughters in school. She is learning how to use a sewing machine so she can triple her income and invest in her family and community.
“Work is a blessing,” she says. “We are grateful; I am grateful.”
Support #WomenForward starting March 5th and help us bring this life-changing opportunity to a new community of women. Here’s how YOU CAN HELP:
- SHARE this campaign with 3 friends who share your vision for empowering women
- DONATE to help more women like Olga emerge as entrepreneurs and provide for children like Yulisa and Merci
- CHANGE your social media profile picture starting March 5th for International Women’s Day, to Olga’s picture to stand beside her in lifting up rural women everywhere
All donations above $75 will be thanked with a special-edition OLGA WRAP BRACELET so you can show your support in style!
With help from people like you, Olga is a living example of moving #WomenForward. Help Mercado Global raise $10,000 to help a community of indigenous women in Guatemala gain opportunities in place of setbacks.
