On Wednesday, March 27, attendees of the 66th annual meeting will have the opportunity to join Fundación En Vía, a non-profit organization that works to empower women to better support themselves and their families. We use funds generated through responsible tourism to provide interest-free loans and educational programs to entrepreneurial women in 5 communities in the Tlacolula Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico.
The organization’s tours offer a unique glimpse into life in Oaxaca through the perspective of individual artisans and business women. We visit small communities just outside of the city of Oaxaca where you will meet hard-working, optimistic, and problem-solving women who are part of En Vía’s microloan program. You will hear directly from these women about their businesses, their communities, and their experiences with micro-finance.
The tours highlight artisanal trades, traditional foods, local economy, and of course En Vía’s micro-finance model.
Participants will gain not only a better understanding of the challenges of life here – in the second poorest state of Mexico – but also help provide a viable path out of poverty. We use your tour donation to fund our loan and education programs.
