Partnership in Fair Trade: Mercado Global’s Asia Neupane ’09
Mercado Global is a nonprofit whose distinctive Fair Trade collections demonstrate the power of partnership to change the world, one purchase at a time. Each Mercado collection starts with a journey to the highlands of Guatemala, where designers partner with indigenous women artisans to develop unique creations that fuse exceptional Mayan craftsmanship with modern design. Their model helps mothers in Mercado’s partner communities break the cycle of poverty and send their children to school.
