Real women with real stories

Women’s Cooperative

The ME Co-Op is comprised of 16 women who live in and around Cielo. Most of them do not have regular jobs and struggle daily to make ends meet. As a group they meet twice a week. They work on their projects together as well as at home.

They began working together in 2006 birthed from an idea from their American friends. Their first project was a simple tote bag. In August 2007, they began making Christmas ornaments and have been selling them to earn an income.

They have now taken to jewelry-making also and have some beautiful “high-end” stuff.
We are constantly looking for new ideas and ways to help improve their lives. If you have ideas or questions, please contact us.

Be sure to check out their beautiful products in our store.
