Commitment to Action

Economic Opportunities for Low-Income Communities in Mexico

Commitment by

Saber Para la Vida

In 2008, Saber Para la Vida made a two-year commitment to develop a model for the economic empowerment of women in very low-income communities in Mexico. This commitment will conduct a one-year training program for women in four communities, and build a learning network for women owned micro-businesses. Ultimately, this commitment will design and develop a business model that enables these women to market their products outside of Zacatecas and M?xico.
