A MESSAGE FROM MAYRA OF MJ FOOTWEAR

Hello Chica Bean customers! Let me introduce you to my small family business in Pastores, Guatemala.  At MJ Footwear we produce high-quality and handmade artisanal footwear as well as a wide variety of leather goods. My daughters have also joined our family business and together, we hope to build on a cowboy boot making tradition that made Pastores famous. The COVID pandemic has wiped out the tourism industry we in Pastores depend on and our collaboration with Chica Bean is one step towards introducing our artisanal leather products to the world.

OUR COLLABORATION

Chica Bean is invested in our community’s economic recovery.  The drop in Guatemalan tourism due to Covid19 significantly impacted local artisans’ sales.  The Ministry of Economy and Peace Corps, through virtual service, began working with local artisans to explore alternative sales mechanisms, including digital marketing.  Our Guatemalan Marketplace was built just for this, to bring you quality Guatemalan products at a fair price.

TRACEABILITY

Price to MJ Footwear: $42
Chica Bean Costs: $6.30
Shipping, handling, and exporting/importing: $6
