FIBER TRANSFORMATIONS

Our beautiful Guatemala has abundant fibers. These can be re-used or transformed to create income, ie jobs, needed by every community. By innovating our fibers, to global market needs, we create new opportunity, and jobs!! Our world is a cleaner ecological ambience. This solves problems of fiber waste (like the garbage left by palm oil exports; and pollution of rivers in communities by chemical dyes). It will positively reduce unemployment, affect 90% unemployment en Chiquimula, for example, not to mention other areas of high migration. Large numbers of youth and women will have new options. An EDUCATIONAL SUMMIT, & INNOVATON CENTER are key components. Maguey, palm, banana, vetiver, bamboo, indigo, achiote, natural dyes, and cane, can - with innovative collaboration of Universities and Corporate R & D, be recycled to salable ecologically congruent export products, like paper, fertilizer, textiles, etc. The goal: for GUATEMALA To be THE GO-TO-PLACE FOR TRANSFORMED NATURAL FIBERS.

Saludos linda, me parece muy interesante tu idea, tenia algunas dudas: 1. De donde vas a conseguir el volumen de fibra necesario para que sea comercialmente viable? especifica. 2. Existe ya el INNOVATION CENTER que mencionas? 3. Como seria relación con las mujeres Chortis (cooperativa, empleo directo, socias, etc)?

FIBER TRANSFORMATIONS combines the intensity of local sustainable development work with a national scope. It responds to both local and national issues and needs for more employment and income. It is based on the natural resources Guatmala already has and apparently overlooks, or does not recycle, not comprehending the high market potential in the sustainable and innovation transformation of these fibers. FIBER TRANSFORMATIONS is clearly a market driven project; funds should be given to support market research and connections, internationally. Marketing, is an area Guatemala consistently ignores and needs to re-address. THE ONLY WAY TO INCREASE business and incomes is through more and better sales. This comes from market strategy, analysis- trend observation - and direct exposure, personal relationships, exhibitons, and conference participation. Budgets for this are consistently limited to non-existent in Guatemala. This needs to be reversed for entrepreneurial success in fibers.
