This is the statement from the importer of the products from GuatemalaWe believe in investing in Guatemala. Our company is committed to the principles of integrity, responsibility, education and a healthy life.
We support the communities where we operate by setting up sustainable, livelihood-enhancing projects in favour of the artisans who manufacture our products
Installations of latrinesWater filtersWood-efficient stovesVegetable gardensSchool supplies and school meals for young children
Other actions are undertaken with our office workers:
University scholarshipsSponsorship of sports eventsEnglish classes
We also support the families with zero-interest finance schemes, which they use to manufacture the products they sell to us. Such a lending program empowers smallholder artisans with credit, enabling them to increase their productivity, without encumbering them with upfront cash requirements to buy inputs.
We believe in the premise of the better off the community due to economic activity, the more likely our own markets and procurement opportunities are to be maintained.
