PMIEF’s 2017 PM Ready Workforce grant to CARE USA scales up two previously piloted business and finance training initiatives by integrating project management into them to strengthen Ecuadorian women producers’ and entrepreneurs’ income-generating abilities. The grant helps resuscitate the country’s social and economic progress following its devastating earthquake in 2016. Leveraging PMIEF’s Project Management Skills for Life®, CARE USA will engage participating associations of women in design thinking to bring income-generating craft and agricultural projects to market, which will promote tourism and sustainable economic development. The organization will select, seed, and monitor the progress of the most feasible of these projects while concurrently marketing investment opportunities to funders who can support them, including village savings and loans associations that can advance solidarity-based economics.
