In the years since my co-founder, Hannah Skvarla, and I founded The Little Market, we’ve been so proud and grateful to see how much our non-profit has grown. What started as an idea between two friends has turned into a global organization that empowers women artisans and producers worldwide. We couldn’t be happier about the success and impact The Little Market has had on so many people. Today, I’m here to share 5 little known facts you might not know about my favorite fair-trade shop.

2. When Hannah and I met, we bonded over a shared love of traveling and a desire to give back. We planned a trip to Tanzania and Uganda, where we met with nonprofits and social enterprises working to empower women. A lot of the women we met with wanted the opportunity to have a sustainable income and break the cycle of poverty for their families. Both Hannah and I were inspired to find a sustainable way to give back, so we created The Little Market as a bridge to create opportunities for women artisans worldwide.
