Maya Pedal the amazing bicycle machines of Guatemala
Maya Pedal is a Guatemalan owned NGO which designs and manufactures pedal powered machines from bicycles. While most of our world sees the bicycle as a means of horizontal transportation, we see the bicycle machines as an opportunity for upward mobility for impoverished people.
For over 20 years Maya Pedal has produced corn cobbers and mills, coffee de-pulpers and grinders, water pumps and filters, jute fiber separators, and much more. Our machines reduce labor, therefore elevating incomes, which empowers families to feed and educate their children.
Maya Pedal, Agrapto, and Riseup are transforming the lives of women and girls from communities in Guatemala. For its part, Maya Pedal provides a variety of bicycle powered machines to reduce subsistence labor and thus raise incomes. Women and girls find equal place in the Maya Pedal shop.
