Let´s share our treasure
Mexico is a country full of many beautiful things. The culture, the landscape, the people, their history are some reasons that makes Mexico a great place. Of course there are some positive and negative things. Mainly one of the biggest problems in México is that not everyone has the same opportunities, in fact the 45.5% of the population lives in poverty. In some Mexican villages, we can find amazing handworks created by the habitants, and they tried to sell this things whatever it takes to survive everyday. The reality is that they put a big effort creating this things, and the price they set doesn´t really reflect the value of their work.
I am an industrial designer, i have the ability to know about materials, process, design and how to be more productive. The idea here is to make a business plan to these people and the main purpose is to increase their incomes. An example is an hamaca created by the habitants of the southest of México. They spend one or two weeks making the product, and they sell it very cheap, like $200 mxn to other people. These people take advantage of it, and goes to the city to sell this products in an amount near of $800-$1000 mxn and this is just not fair. Basically what i want to do is to offer the hand workers the opportunity to improve the way they produce, and the selling of their products. And so, to create an identity of the Mexican design, by making quality products and exporting them. That way the low-incomes will be raised, and they can have their small business.
