Artisan: La ComUnidad
Arising out of Friendship Bridge, a non-profit organization that provides microcredit and educational programs to women in Guatemala, the artisan cooperative La ComUnidad creates beautiful, women-made crafts whose sale improves the lives of the women who make them, their families, and their communities as a whole.
Friendship Bridge is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that provides microcredit and educational programs so women and their families can create their own solutions to poverty. The organization blends the short-term economic development needs of women through access to credit and education with the long-term goal of breaking the generational cycle of poverty by providing educational opportunities for their children. Friendship Bridge has affected the lives of hundreds of thousands of rural people by investing in women entrepreneurs, first in Vietnam and now in rural Guatemala -- women who become leaders and agents of change for themselves, their families and communities.
La ComUnidad is proud to offer handwoven and hand-beaded crafts straight from their homes -- and hearts -- to yours.
