Product Description:

Handmade in Ecuador
Masapan (bread dough)

In response to the rising costs of living in Ecuador during the 1980s, a group of faith based communities organized to find a solution.  The result was the formation of MCCH, a cooperative marketing organization which was started in 1985.  Maquita Cushunchic Comercializando Como Hermanos, whose name is a mix of Quechua and Spanish and means "Let's join hands and market as brothers," represents 400 groups from all regions of Ecuador who produce both handcrafts and agricultural products. 11 pieces. approx. 2 1/2” h. Fair Trade Product.
