Mercado Global connects artisans to the world market

Mercado Global is a nonprofit that fights poverty by promoting rural women entrepreneurs. The group mainly connects indigenous Guatemalan women artisans to the global market, through fair trade, giving them access to “sustainable incomes and community-based education programs.” Raised in Chicago, Mercado Global’s co-founder and executive director Ruth DeGolia is back home to talk about her work.
