Microbusinesses help create self-sustainability

 

Growing microbusinesses that operate out of the Monte Carlo farm provide a steady income for many artisans. Members of The Mercy Kids community are learning to make products out of pine needles, banana leaves and other locally sourced materials that are then sold in Nicaragua and in the United States.

Our goal is to employ as many moms of children with disability as possible. 

Products created include a line of tote bags, backpacks, children’s toys, wooden products, Christmas ornaments and nativities, and a wide variety of baskets {see samples below}. We are always looking for avenues to sell these beautifully created products. 

As artisans move from aid to trade, their standard of living rises as they learn new skills that support the betterment of their families.

Please use the CONTACT US tab below if you have a retail/wholesale connection. 

A mom teaches her daughter who is deaf to make pine needle baskets. The baskets are gorgeous and sell well. It is exciting for them to earn a fair wage and rewarding for us to be creating more jobs.
