In late 2007 and early 2008, Ajb'atz' Enlace Quiche offered an improved training option for young micro-business operators in rural Guatemala, reaching 100 people.

This new course, "Technifying my Business" teaches computer skills to micro-business operators using practical activities, such as creating fliers, business cards, and inventories. This course was developed as part of the Lanz@ project led by the Omar Dengo Foundation in Costa Rica and funded by IDRC (Canada). Donations made to the Enlace Quiche scholarship program through Global Giving helped this course reach additional micro-business operators in the Quiche region.
