Challenge

Socio-environmental disasters in Mexico have affected numerous local economies. Such consequences, combined with gender inequality, lack of opportunities for business skills development and lack of access to credit have exacerbated the obstacles women entrepreneurs face. Women economic empowerment, through women entrepreneurship is a way to reactivate the economy of earthquake affected areas and a path to achieve gender equality.

Solution

Our project solves the problem by teaching women how to have a successful business. The Personal Initiative module cements grounds for women to develop a more proactive attitude and overcome obstacles in a creative way. The Business module trains women on accounting, pricing, marketing, financial and business planning. Resulting in higher sales, profits, better saving practices and higher access to credit. Later translating into reinvestment for their businesses and sustainable business growth.

Long-Term Impact

We believe in the immense potential of women and the impact they have in their communities. By building women's capacities in earthquake affected areas through an impact evaluated methodology, we aim at implementing a sustainable project in which the key actors are the women members of earthquake affected communities. The long-term impact of our project is the economic recovery through the creation of sustainable, innovative and successful businesses run by women entrepreneurs.
