Mercado Global is a nonprofit that empowers indigenous women in rural Latin America to break the cycle of local poverty by providing business development support and international market access. Through Mercado Global's business education and market access programs, these women are rising to become successful entrepreneurs and are earning the income they need to send their children to school, often for the first time.

Mercado Global's innovative model has been featured by NPR, on the cover of Newsweek, and by the Huffington Post. Their collections have been featured by Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar and Oprah Magazine and are carried by retailers such as Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Target, Garnet Hill and the Ritz Carlton.

Community-based education trainings allow women to make self-identified investments in areas such as financial literacy, community education and health. Its groundbreaking model has been recognized by Newsweek, National Public Radio, Good Morning America, and the World Bank; its leadership has spoken before the United Nations and the Clinton Global initiative.
