Microfinance Tours

Our microfinance tour is our most popular tour. It will take you into two communities approximately 30-60 minutes outside of Oaxaca to meet women who are ready for their next En Vía microloan. Each of the women we visit will present her project – whether it is weaving rugs or raising chickens, selling flowers or making tortillas – and explain what she has done with past loans, and what she plans to do with subsequent loans. You will hear about the projects, learn about their community, and have a chance to ask any questions you may have about how it all works. A delicious lunch at an En Vía entrepreneur’s business or home will provide you with an authentic taste of Oaxacan cuisine.

"Meeting these talented, intelligent, resourceful women and their families was a privilege. The tours help fund the lending program so I felt that not only was I receiving a great experience but also contributing to the people we met. "
