It was at this point in time, Amy met a group of women who were weaving wallets and purses out of recycled wrappers such as single serve coffee, coco and tea packets collected from local businesses and government buildings. She was impressed with the quality craftsmanship & innovative design of the products. When Amy heard their story and learned that they didn’t have a local market for their products she was compelled to help.
Summary of SORA
In 2015, SORA products was formed in partnership with two Filipina friends. SORA products is a Chicago Fair Trade local business which provides the market for these women and those in two other communities in the Philippines who are all now making a fair wage for their craft. It is giving them enough income to help provide for their children’s basic needs, plus family medical, education, & home improvement income.
We are seeing these talented womens’ lives transformed by the opportunity to bring their products to the marketplace. We thank you for your interest in this important business venture. However, there are many more families that need our help. You can make this growth a reality by buying a SORA product or helping us find creative ways of selling SORA products near you.
We can’t end poverty or save the world, but we can save a single family, and for them, that is their entire world.
