I LOVE ME GEMS
Manos Emprendedoras (ME), in English translates to entrepreneurial hands. We provide growth opportunities to immigrant women from around the world living in Colorado. With our help, they are able to better provide for their families and adapt to our culture in a peaceful and beautiful way.
ME offers immigrant women a chance to transcend language barriers and use their hands to transmit their inner beauty. By creating beautiful pieces of jewelry with extreme care, they express gratitude for their new home and hope for a better life.
We want to thank you very much for supporting these women as they use their creativity to live without fear and with much love. They receive a compensation much higher than the market average and they work in a comfortable, peaceful and pressure-free environment. You could say that it is more a group therapy than a job.
You can rest assured that we use only the highest quality materials, hypoallergenic metals and semiprecious stones and also we support other communities of enterprising women who make beads of recycled materials
The best day of the week is when we meet for class. There, we share experiences, joys, sorrows, fears, celebrations, and recommendations for a better life in our new home, the State of Colorado in the United States. Due to the pandemic, our classroom is now virtual, but we hope very soon to get back together and feel that magical energy of union that can only be experienced in the classroom.
