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

When Marisol became a single mother, she became overwhelmed with bills and not enough income to support herself and her daughter. At one point she became close to losing her car and her house leaving her and her daughter homeless. Marisol managed to work extremely hard to overcome this challenge for her daughter. Her determination and love for her daughter got her through the tough times and now she proudly provides for the both of them.

Marisol employs 16 people in her workshop to keep up with the demand of her products. She also is a huge community supporter and gives back in so many ways. She purposely hires people of either a young or old age because many companies limit their work and won't hire them because of their age. She also supports other workshops to sell, and gives them tips and new product ideas.

Aura first learned how to make worry dolls from her mother-in-law, the first women to make these traditional dolls in their community. Aura now teacher her children and nephews the same traditional techniques she was taught. The craft has grown dramatically as friends and family now continue with the legacy of worry dolls.

Marisol received a prize from the Ministry of Culture as the Best Woman Entrepreneur in El Salvador. She also won a contest called "El Salvador Productivo" which connects talented artisans to new customers.

One of Marisol's workers has a hand disability. Although it is challenging for him to work, he is persistent and his effort has led him to be the leader of leather-working in the workshop.

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

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