When you google the word “microenterprise,” you might get a lot about startups and small companies. However, when you travel to Latin America with AMIGOS, microenterprise takes on a completely new definition.⠀
In rural communities, microenterprises are business endeavors started by the community, for the community. Typically, these are family run, allowing one or two people in the household to support themselves and bring goods or services into their area. Some examples include planting a small crop and selling it, starting a guinea pig farm, or even running a small beauty salon.⠀
