Many marginalized communities in Bolivia have limited economic opportunities and their artistic contributions are under-valued. Asociación de Artesanos del Campo (Artecampo) is a grassroots women’s association that will strengthen its administrative, management, marketing and production capacity in order to become more self-sufficient through sales of its art and artisan crafts. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Bolivia. Artecampo’s activities encourage local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
