Occupational Ministry Site

Social Work — Micro-Enterprise
Costa Rica

This dynamic site works with groups of women in the three communities of Los Guido, La Capri, and Las Fuentes. These groups serve as a platform for teaching basic business principles such as: writing a business plan, writing and keeping a budget, accounting, marketing, etc. This site works with women to help them secure small business loans in order to launch and/or grow their various small businesses. This Women's Social Work / Micro-business site also includes an English class for the ladies one day a week, and a support group for teenage girls, providing discipleship, education, and support especially in the areas of relationships, pregnancy, and parenting. The hope of this site is to see lives and families transformed as women discover their value and identity in Christ, receive love and support as they reach personal and business goals, and to provide a safe community for women who may otherwise be isolated.
