Social Economy: Territory and Inclusion Project
Mexico is classified as an upper-middle-income country; however, 61.1 per cent of the rural population live in poverty and 20.6 per cent in extreme poverty. In addition, 52.4 per cent of women live in households with per capita income below the well-being line, and 88 per cent of rural women are highly marginalized.
The Territory and Inclusion Project aims to enable rural farmers to access the support and funding provided in the Government’s Social Economy Development Programme. It will also work to raise their productivity and incomes by investing in productive projects, delivering technical assistance and strengthening access to financial services. The end goal is comprehensive development of highly marginalized communities and social sector organizations.
The project will be implemented in four states: Chiapas, Guerrero, Oaxaca and Puebla.
An estimated 22,540 people will benefit from the project.
