Why our Artists Work

Each member has a specific goal she has set for herself, which include:

  • Being the first in her family to go to college;
  • Buying a computer;
  • Opening up her own business;
  • Inspiring her children;
  • Building a house; and,
  • Meeting basic family needs.

    Mujeres Cambia provides a platform for women to gain financial independence, practice leadership and entrepreneurial skills, explore their creativity, and build a community of supportive women throughout Ecuador and around the globe. According to the World Bank, 70% of Ecuadorian women do not have their own source of income. Prior to joining the group, the majority of Mujeres Cambia members (89%) were dependent upon the income from their fathers, husbands, and sons. Now, our members have an independent source of income, increasing their voice in their families and in their communities.
