Income Generation

Concern America partners with several artisan cooperatives around the world, and sells their crafts and coffee to bring their members fair and equitable sources of income. Click here¬† to visit our online marketplace, click the tab “Fair Trade Crafts.”

The Need
Many women in the countries of Bangladesh, El Salvador, Mexico, and Guatemala need a stable source of income to provide for their families.

Our Approach
Concern America buys crafts from local cooperatives, which give these (mostly) women a source of steady income. A job instills dignity and stability in their families and communities, and these cooperatives take the funds received from their work and invest it back into the community.
