According to the Secretariat of Social Development in Mexico, the 72.9% of the population in Oxkutzcab, Yucatan is living in poverty. The lack of opportunities and the social backwardness in the region have resulted in the migration of the male population, causing that the women become the main source of livelihood of their families, but the limited access to education hinders them to have a worthy job. This project seeks the training for self-employment and the increase of their family revenues
