For my none Spanish speaking readers, the translation of "Colectivo", is "Collective" and as you make your way through Colectivo in Eastlake, you'll certainly see that they have a remarkable collection of clothing, jewelry, arts, and crafts from women designers and business owners from both Mexico and the United States. My favorite part though is that my dear friend Mayra Voelker-Garcia is all about empowering women, and as she says in the video, everyone who brings something to Colectivo Eastlake has an incredibly empowering story, and everytime someone shops at Colectivo Eastlake, they are furthering the empowerment of women business owners!
It's so important to support women-owned businesses because by doing this we are increasing the economic stability of our families and communities. By women owning their own businesses they are able to create jobs, grow wealth, and give back in so many ways. They also help shape the way other young girls see themselves as they grow and develop into leaders. Empowering women is Mayra's mission and besides the fact that she's a beautiful person, this is truly something I really love about her. If you're looking for a place to find something for yourself or someone you love, try going down to Colectivo Eastlake.
