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

"I love this art because it represents my past and my present. Through our weavings, we communicate our cultural values. Preserving this beautiful artistic tradition has become a challenge since young women don't seem to be interested in weaving, so we need to promote it or else it will die out." Mirian first learned how to weave from her mother, and wishes to inspire others and pass this tradition down to new generations.

Miriam is a strong and amazing women who has managed to overcome a horrible incident of sexual abuse. Her hard work and determination have made her the inspirational woman she is today.

Mirian has worked hard to create new designs which has led to the increase in her sales. Her perseverance and passion have helped her continuously expand and grow her weaving workshop.

Both of her children are still in school and Mirian plans to continue to financially support their education.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.

Mirian has two children that she supports, Julio and Ferando.

Mirian gives work to both women and men in her workshop.
