How does my purchase help the community?
Purchasing goods through Piece Collectors, promotes a healthy economy and generates a steady income within the communities that we align ourselves with.
We try, where possible to source our products from families with low income earners, health issues or in-need of general financial aid.
In San Marcos Lake Laguna, Guatemala approximately 75 % of a low income earners wage is allocated to the purchasing of firewood and corn. That leaves little else for necessities such as fresh fruit and vegetables, health care etc. As a result many families are malnourished, have poor health and lack formal education. UNICEF released a report in December 2014, ranking Guatemala number five in the world’s most malnourished countries.
