Challenge

Chiapas is one of the poorest states in Mexico. Eight out of ten people are in poverty or extreme poverty. A financial analyst concluded that only 6.1% of the population in Chiapas is far from poverty. This project will benefit the economy of more than 200 families in one of the poorest areas of Mexico. It will help to achieve local development of the Tzeltal-Tzotzil Cooperative.

Solution

The Tzeltal-Tzotzil Cooperative will provide training to improve the production processes. It will also allow to have spaces with good working conditions to obtain good quality products for fair trade. This will help to consolidate much more the work that is done in the cooperative and in the members integration processes.

Long-Term Impact

This project seeks to consolidate the Tzeltal-Tzotzil Cooperative as a group that guarantees the long-term well-being of their community, through improvement of its productive activities, strengthening their capacities and fortifying the local cultural identity.
