Meet the Artisans
MYO Accessories is well aware of the poverty among indigenous groups in central Mexico, where the family-run business is located. The business was started to help these people live better lives by employing the rural women, to make their products, such as the candy wrapper purses. In addition to offering these women employment, they give them the opportunity to take the materials to their homes so they can better care for their families while they work, and whatever materials are left over are free for the women to use in personal ventures. This helps improve the quality of their lives as well as provide a sustainable income.
