Remember, sharing is caring!

“working four years in the private industry, I learned a lot of process, indicators and how to be an “effective employee”, but the frustration and limitations of not having the liberty to make the final decisions, and involving in different areas at the same time, it made me feel incomplete. I felt I had the ability to do something bigger to bring a positive impact to my community but the leading reason was to live in a country where violence happens daily, poverty exceeds more than 50% of the population, and economic instability: It was impossible not thinking about the situation living in one of the most dangerous States in Mexico. So last year during my return to my hometown of Tamaulipas I meet Benjamin and Anahí, a couple of artisans of Guerrero unable to sell their products in days and unable to feed their families I took action to start a venture called Akumal Shop with the hopes to help the most vulnerable communities in Mexico and Latin America to alleviate poverty.”
