The Board of Directors
Each cooperative is also a small enterprise, where the women have both the role of artisans and administrators.
The artisans are the leaders of the organization. They choose their representatives for the director’s board, with elections every 2 years. Representatives of every cooperative meet annually, to make decisions about the whole organization.
