Peru Paper Co. Online

Our friend, Grace Bateman, has put her micro-finance company online. It’s called Peru Paper Co. Here is an excerpt from the website:

“It is out of the unlikely setting of impoverished neighborhoods in Trujillo, Peru, that Peru Paper Co. has flourished. Peruvian women are highly creative and industrious, thriving in even the most difficult situations, and Peru Paper Co. has grown to where it is today primarily because the Peruvian women working with it saw its potential early on and have worked hard to see that it succeeds. What began as a small craft project in Trujillo in the spring of 2005 has continued to grow, consistently adding employees and increasing production and sales. We produce and sell high-quality, handmade stationary and paper products from recycled materials, employing underprivileged and marginalized women in Peru who would otherwise not have the opportunity to make a livable wage to support their families. Your purchases help grow the business and change lives as more Peruvian women are employed.”
