THE PROBLEM

IN MEXICO...

Gender equality

UN Women (2016) estimates that production levels in Latin America and the Caribbean could increase by 25% if we could minimize the barriers women face when starting businesses.

Labor access

In Mexico, only 43% of women participate in the labor market, compared to 78% of men (UN Women, 2016).

TESTIMONY

Ángeles Diaz

State of Mexico.
“I am one of the women who makes herbal health and beauty products with Xanatl Tlapantli (healing flower). I am very happy because I make products that improve customers’ health. I am satisfied with and proud of our products because people are becoming familiar with them and when they apply the pomades or the creams, they see results. That makes me feel good and motivates me to keep working”.

Manuela

Los Altos, Chiapas.
“I really like everything we learned in the embroidery workshop. What I liked most is that I learned new techniques called ‘relleno’ and ‘rococo.’ I also liked that we learned to combine stitches to make different forms and shapes. Now I know how to make my products more beautiful and choose different colors”.
