Promoting Entrepreneurship among the Youth of Paraguay


Fundación Paraguaya is a non-governmental organization founded in 1985 that has spearheaded microfinance and entrepreneurship, helping youth to acquire the skills necessary to launch their own rural enterprises, access decent work in the agriculture/livestock sector, or continue their studies. The model, which is easily replicated, includes: 1) a microcredit program for 86,000 small and emerging micro-entrepreneurs who are largely ignored by other microfinance institutions; 2) entrepreneurial and financial education for children and youth; 3) financially self-sustaining farming high schools that train children of poor farmers to become their own rural entrepreneurs.
