What is Mercado Global?
Mercado Global is a fair trade organization helping women and children in Central America lift themselves out of poverty. The organization harnesses the power of merchandising by selling beautiful handcrafted jewelry made by these women in the Central American mountains. Through Mecardo Global's Web site and marketing efforts, these handmade products are now sold in stores around the world and online.
