Empowering artisans with sustainable income through their craft is the inspiration for Meyelo. Investing in small business in developing countries brings social and economic change.
Every purchase provides their artisans with a source of fair trade income, support for their community, and a global platform for their work. Many skilled artisans have limited access to education and economic opportunity. Meyelo provides training programs in business practices to ensure the understanding of the global market. They also permanently invest in the future of our artisans and their communities by giving a portion of our proceeds back into the growth of their small businesses. With every purchase, you are helping provide for their families and support their community. Currently, Meyelo employs over 80 artisans in Kenya.
Meyelo’s long-term investment in helping others is the foundation of their business model. They work in community development with Maasai villages and provide access to education, water, farming co-ops and medical needs. Meyelo empowers women, girls and their communities with sustainable programs.
