AMPARO DE LEÓN DE RUBIO
Amparo is the current vice-president of Trama Textiles, and is passionate about improving opportunity and livelihood for women.
Amparo has worked with Trama Textiles for over 23 years and is based at the Trama office in Xela, coordinating the work of the 400 weavers across the highlands of Guatemala.
Oralia’s dream is to fully employ the 400 women who work with Trama. For Oralia, paying women a fair wage for their products is incredibly rewarding as it has a direct impact on empowering women within the community.
