Maureen went on to become this impressive fair trade entrepreneur. She established her company, Mata Traders, almost 14 years ago in Chicago. The company has partnerships with women’s cooperatives in India and Nepal and sells their clothing and jewelry here in the U.S. It’s such a cool story.
Today it’s Xouhoa Bowen. She is an activist, former PeaceCorps volunteer, and the founder and CEO of Community Impact Lab, a nonprofit organization in my neighborhood dedicated to taking action and to expanding opportunities for everyone, especially women and children.
