The second group of people that work with the cooperative is the artisans in the village. These individuals receive a piece wage. When the cooperative receives orders too large for the women in the shop to complete within the deadline agreed upon, they send the work to the villages and the women in the villages complete the work. This option gives the cooperative flexibility to expand and contract production based upon their customers’ needs. They also do not have a large payroll so they are able to keep the people in the office paid. With the exception of a few, the artisans in the villages also take on work from different groups. The people in the village have also seen the migration to the United States and would prefer to work in their homes.
