Challenge

75% of Guatemala’s rural population lives in poverty; most are indigenous people. Lack of resources and education and recent surges in male emigration to the US leave rural women providing for the family alone. APROSADSE provides women with a pathway out of poverty with loans to purchase livestock, trains the women on their care, and guides them through the process of building a successful small business.

Solution

The project will provide loans, guide women through business paperwork and loan re-payment processes, provide trainings on animal/ project maintenance and provide support through regularly scheduled meetings and vets visits.

Long-Term Impact

Women can provide regular nourishment for their families, enabling more children to attend and graduate from school. More resources will flow into rural communities, and fewer people will migrate to cities or the US.
