The Juárez Micro Lending Program is designed to pay particular attention to women microentrepreneurs who have some income generating activity, living in the marginal areas of Cd Juárez, that require working capital to improve and diversify their sources of income. It will give access to microcredits to the unattended population with a stable source of funding, increasing their capacity to improve their economic opportunities and generate self-employment. The program will perform for 2 years and will have and approximate budget of USD 450,000. Under this two-year public-private alliance, the Mexican Federation of Private Associations (FEMAP-SADEC) facilitates access to financial resources for women entrepreneurs in Ciudad Juárez through a microcredit revolving fund and providing financial and business training. 1,200 low income women microentrepreneurs are expected to directly benefit from this program.
