This entrepreneurial initiative created by Colombians Juan Camilo Viveros, Laura Viveros, Carolina Gutiérrez and Juan Carlos Rodríguez has changed lives and fulfilled dreams for a group of artisans from a town in the region of Santander, Colombia. As one of its founders Juan Camilo Viveros says, “the Government has no tools to reach all corners of the country, and if we with our company can help and we can generate employment, fulfill the dreams of elderly craftsmen and contribute to improve the educational level of a population, why not do it? The satisfaction that is felt is enormous. “These Colombians are combining their vision of social sense with their entrepreneurial capacity to carry out a great project that is giving back and bringing many smiles.
