MayaWorks is a nonprofit, fair trade social venture that works directly with indigenous women of Guatemala. At its core, MayaWorks is about creating work for women so that they can financially support their families and become fully contributing members of their communities.
MayaWorks helps women transform their skills into a means of financial support for their families by creating a market for the traditional arts of Maya artisans. Textile and beaded products are distributed within wholesale and retail markets and are also sold by U.S. women in their local communities. In addition, MayaWorks provides micro-credit loans and educational opportunities for artisans and their family members.
