How we Work

Our Process

Group members meet twice a week to discuss business, receive payments, and fulfill orders. The group is run by its members who make all decisions by democratic vote led by the organization's Board:
  • Gina, President
  • Betsy, Vice President
  • Elba, Secretary
  • Alexandra, Treasurer

Our Products

Mujeres Cambia makes and sells products made from recycled materials. Our jewelry is made from post-consumer waste paper (we never buy new paper to make our beads) and is finished with varnish in order to make our products durable and water resistent. In addition to our commitment to the environment, we price our products in order to secure a fair, livable wage to our members.

Our Payments

100% of proceeds from sales support members and their work. 80% is paid directly to each artist while 20% is put into the Group Fund that is used to pay for supplies, equipment, marketing, and other shared costs.

Our Programs

The Group Fund enables Mujeres Cambia to maintain several programs to benefit its members. These include:

  • Savings Program
  • Social Loan Fund
  • Financial Literacy
  • Business Training
  • Computer Skills
  • Educational Workshops
