Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

While Mayra faces her own health challenges, her baby boy caught dengue fever which is a mosquito-borne viral disease and is the leading cause of death occurring in tropical and subtropical areas. With all that she and her son face, she continues to push forward with incredible strength.

Mayra is going through a very difficult time in her life since the money her husband earns is not enough to live on and, although her sales in NOVICA are a constant help, they are not enough to cover her expenses.

Mayra Leticia Hernandez has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $150 and the most recent for $400.

Mayra is a proud weaver who uses a backstrap loom, a traditional technique that has been practiced for generations in Central America.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Mayra has one son under the age of ten that she loves deeply and cares for.

I have a Cotton table runner 'Yellow Quetzal' by Mayra Leticia Hernandez. The overall design, the colors, the detail and craftsmanship are stunning. Knowing who made it is just an added bonus. Thank you! A. Kuhn


The 'white nun orchid' table runner is absolutely gorgeous - richly colored and exotic. The only problem is I can't decide whether to be selfish and keep it or to save it for a wonderful gift. Thank you for your beautiful art. - Jeanne
