MayaWorks believes that community development happens through economic development of women. MayaWorks is a nonprofit social venture that empowers indigenous women of Guatemala to achieve economic security by providing markets for their handcrafted products, access to microcredit loans, and expanded educational opportunities.

At its core, MayaWorks is about creating work for women so that they can financially support their families and become fully contributing members of their communities.

MayaWorks helps women transform their skills into a means of financial support for their families by creating a market for the traditional arts of Maya artisans. Textile products are distributed within retail and wholesale markets.

Giving Guatemalan women an opportunity to earn an income from their skills gives them self-confidence and hope for themselves, their families, and their communities.
