Plateros Group's story

Mrs. Clotilde is a cheerful, hard-working but above all, a very kind woman, who is originally from a community located in the State of Mexico. This region has a rich ecosystem, as it has diverse animal and native plant species.

She is a member of a group called “Plateros” [Silversmiths] and similarly to her partners, she wants to improve her business. Eight years ago she decided to work making silver handcrafts, in which are highlighted the motifs of the culture that gave rise to them: the Mazahua.

On other hand, the benefits that she obtained with VFMéxico are of great help for the development of her business. This time she would buy more raw materials with which she will make pendants, bracelets, earrings, etc.

Her goal is to position herself as one of the best artisans in her community. Although she knows it won't be simple, she trusts her work and her passion.
