Each of our GLOBAL products are named after a heroic woman in Ethiopia or Kenya that we work with, and comes with a note saying what she's ABLE to do because of your purchase.
We introduced you to Mamuye when we first launched the Tote named in her honor last summer. While this bag continues to be everybody's favorite (seen on Julianne Hough, Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, Drew Barrymore, and Olivia Wilde - no big deal.) -- we wanted to get an update on Mamuye herself.
Mamuye and her husband both work and contribute to their home. She recently got a salary raise and is able to lead a more comfortable life. She still works on stitching but is highly specialized - with 6 years of experience now and on-job trainings. She always goes to church and listen to religious songs at her free time. Her goal has changed and now she hopes to own her own leather goods production business one day!
Her original ABLE statement has been "Because of your purchase, I am ABLE to work hard and get promoted, too." It's so neat to see her hard work paying off, and that she's gotten a raise! Thank you for helping us to create sustainable business for women like Mamuye.
