María Pacheco

Co-founder and President of Wakami Global

In 2006 María Pacheco and her partners established the Wakami Global Value Chain with the mission of “seeing the beauty in the world now!” The business model of Wakami Global is to create a network of rural communities where the fashion products of local women can be sold through an international export chain.

Today, Wakami Global is exporting fashion accessories to more than fifteen countries, including Europe, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama, and the Dominican Republic. Wakami Global products are sold by such outlets as Club Monaco, Brandy Melville, Ralph Lauren, and Natura. María believes that a few simple acts of entrepreneurship can create prosperity chains that can lift the very poor out of poverty.

Like an ancient Mayan fable full of mysteries and surprises, María’s life work evolved in partnership with the people she loves and serves.
