¿En qué consiste el proyecto?

Just as it occurs almost without exception around the globe, in Guatemala, poverty is highly feminized. 56% of rural and indigenous women are illiterate and 69% of all economically active women in the country work in the informal or underground economy. In most cases, women establish small businesses of their own without having any prior advice or training. It is with these women that we work with this project.
