Now that Wakami Foundation has been improving, the women on the rural areas have learned the benefits of having a formal job. They agreed that the only way to improve the economy of the country is by working, so that they can receive payment and give their children’s a complete education.
My name is María. I was born in Guatemala and I am a biologist, an entrepreneur and founder of the Wakami system. I am also a mother and a firm believer that collective dreams are unstoppable. My life’s work has been to find ways to link people who are stuck in cycles of poverty to markets that can create cycles of prosperity.
