Project Launch: 11/7/16

Kallpa Warmi, an indigenous women's cooperative based in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, has already established a local following with their brand of unique recycled art. The collective is now seeking to expand its entrepreneurial focus to encompass a catering business featuring local gastronomic specialties. This project proposes the acquisition of a collapsible market stall and other supplies so the women of Kallpa Warmi can bring their delicious food to the area's foreign tourists as well as other Ecuadorians.

Project Update: 2/16/17

The women of Kallpa Warmi announced they will be debuting two new vending locations this season: One in their village and another at nearby Cajas National Park! The space at Cafe Galeria in the village was inaugurated in April 2017.
