Indigenous women in impoverished communities in Mexico have already saved money and successfully started their own small businesses through their participation in IMIFAP's microfinance and life skills, "I want to, I can" programs. They have improved their families lives by creating and selling their products in their communities and local markets. The next step is to foster sustainability and growth: by scaling-up their businesses, these women will increase their profits 10 fold.


Women from 10 successful community businesses will receive "I want to, I can" trainings on how to standardize their production, & receive small loans so that their products will reach national markets through an agreement with the Walmart Foundation.

Long-Term Impact

As jointly owned, community businesses, revenues will have a long-term impact on about 200 families. The interest on loans repaid to IMIFAP will be reinvested to start new microfinance projects making the program cyclical and sustainable.
