This Program was developed by INCAE Business School, under the Women’s Business Growth initiative and has the financial support and accompaniment of the PriceSmart Foundation and Cargill. EMPRO aims to strengthen the business knowledge of women, through a series of training sessions that will contribute to the transformation and scaling of their businesses, also promoting access to new markets and financing.
“For INCAE, through its Latin American Center for Competitiveness and Sustainable Development, it is an honor to contribute so that this select group of businesswomen can transform their businesses, generate more employment and prosperity for Honduras. In our institution, we have a commitment for women to overcome the challenges and biases that have traditionally limited their growth potential”, commented Octavio Martínez, Director of CLACDS/INCAE.
The women entrepreneurs belong to the commercial, agricultural, food, services, technology, agribusiness, industrial, personal care and textile sectors, among which are mainly products such as footwear, jewelry, printing, bags, clothing, pastries, sauces and frozen products. These are, for the most part, handmade and innovative products, which could soon be on the international market.
