Date grant awarded: June 25, 2018

Mujeres: Cambia is an artisan group made up of 18 women from Ecuador’s rural fishing villages who make unique jewelry and accessories out of recycled materials. Mujeres: Cambia has been a force for change in the communities and lives of disenfranchised women on Ecuador’s coast. In addition to teaching members marketable skills including bookkeeping, inventory tracking, sales, public speaking, and event management; members benefit from an emergency loan fund and a personal savings program.

Expanding the micro-enterprise will allow for Mujeres: Cambia members to train additional women, attend more artisan events, create more products, and manage the day-to-day business.
