FAIR AND SOLIDARY TRADE PROJECT THAT SEEKS THE DEVELOPMENT AND IMPROVEMENT OF THE LIVING CONDITIONS OF PEASANT WOMEN IN A POVERTY SITUATION IN THE ANDEAN ZONE OF ECUADOR

Helping rural women to market their products is the fundamental objective of Hamuk projects.

His idea was born in 2015, by Paz Huergo who after spending several months volunteering in Ecuador, it is in 2017 that he takes the step to personally start this project in order to help these women from Ecuador who want to recover their traditional craft techniques in order to make them reach the whole world and thus be able to increase their income and that of their family.

With the solidarity and commitment As fundamental points of Proyectos Hamuk, their initiative is to help all women have the same opportunities no matter where they were born.

As for what difference Hamuk projects Other similar ventures include:

  • Being a Spanish venture, it makes its manager Paz know very well the market it is targeting as well as the needs and demands of the target audience, with which the designs and products can be adapted to make them more attractive.
  • Paz's experience as a professional helps create a balance between what is social work and the business world. Sometimes, these types of projects focus a lot on the social, so they do not end up being sustainable over time, nor are all the objectives achieved.
  • The fact that its manager has been a volunteer for a year and a half with a renowned NGO has helped her learn and understand much better how she should approach the Hamuk Project so that it becomes a project with a viable plan, without loss of resources and that it was not only focused on donating money.

During this year, its objective is to continue establishing the project both in Spain and in Ecuador, reaching different stores where artisan products can be sold.

In Paz's own words: “Project Shamuk wants to go beyond mere material improvement, its ultimate goal is to train women in rights, self-esteem, capabilities, etc. so that they become aware of the importance of their mission within the family and society, with the so that they can become citizens with the ability to influence policies and decisions that affect them "

Shamuk is a solidarity project

Focused on collaborating, not exclusively, but mostly, with peasant women and artisans from the Andean area of ​​Ecuador. As is usual in these cases, women are one of the most affected groups in situations of poverty. It is worth as shown by the data that, in the rural area of ​​the province of Loja, in 70% of the homes there are situations of mistreatment of women and, therefore, of children.
