About Mercado Global
Mercado Global is a non-profit fair trade organization that links the world’s most rural and economically-disadvantaged cooperatives to the U.S. market through a model that provides both fair wages and investments in community’s long-term development.
In partnership with NGOs, they work with women’s cooperatives across the world and help them to create beautiful handmade products. 100% of profits return to partner cooperatives to promote both fair wage employment and investments in their children’s education.

We would be assisting the Guatemala offices in improving current systems for inventorying, distributing and tracking raw material, as well as improving current systems for securing access to raw materials and monitoring production.
