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.
