Challenge

The community of Guapalayna is considered by the SEDESOL of the Mexican Government, as a priority attention area due to the high rates of marginalization and poverty. The location of the community is difficult to access because it is located in the ravine. The government supports that reach this region are minimal and difficult to access to achieve them. In the municipality, the indigenous population is 70% same that is associated with poverty.

Solution

Generate economic resources for self-support based on giving added value to chemical-free crops, through sustainable production and being able to market them at a state level under an adequate competitiveness scheme. In this way, the members of the project can improve their living conditions by reactivating the community's economy and in Chihuahua the products produced in the canyon area will be announced.

Long-Term Impact

The Project benefits and directly employs 11 women from the Guapalayna community who, due to their living conditions, are considered vulnerable. Their families are also benefited because they will be responsible for the planting and harvesting of fruits and vegetables free of chemicals, while the ladies will be in charge of preparing, dehydrating and packing the finished product. Additionally, they will buy the production of 80 families in the community.
