Originally from the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, Ana studied International Commerce. As part of her social service at the end of her studies, Anna worked in a social program called VAT (Value Added Increase) developed by the Chamber of Commerce of Guanajuato, the purpose of this project was to help the artisans to improve and assess their job. In this period, Ana had the opportunity to meet artisans from around the state. The interaction with them awakened in her a passion to find and strengthen equality between people. Although not notice, the seeds of future social project would be planted at the time.
After graduation, Ana moved to Europe and began a career in the financial sector, studied a Masters in Business Administration, but always with the intention of using all that knowledge to give back to the place where he grew up and other developing countries. I felt that Europe had given great opportunities and wanted to use them to help people.
With the enthusiasm of Mauricio, SurYNor was founded in 2012, and together they began to meet artisans in developing countries, leading them to create fair trade company we see today.
“Be The Difference You Want To See In The World” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Inspired by this phrase and with the intention of helping others, Ana and I have launched SuryNor platform in 2012.
The general idea of the project is simply to help others through our experience and personal and professional situation.
Through my connection with Yoga practice I realized about the concept of Dharma or Purpose in life. This project intention is to contribute a tinny bit to create a more Fair world where doing business is synonymous with Ethical work, compassion and love for others.
