Demographic of Artisans: Extreme Poverty
Sibimbe is one of the Thistle Farms’ accelerator programs. This co-op in Ecuador was founded to provide safe work and improve the quality of life for artisan survivors.
Sibimbe was launched globally so that women could feel freedom locally. This co-op pairs anestorial sewing skills with vocational training. Sibimbe gives women the opportunity to be self sustaining and expand to U.S. markets that would be otherwise inaccessible.
