Walmart de México Foundation and allies will provide training for 25,000 Mexican women to start up a business.

Mexico City. THE Walmart de México Foundation announced their initiative, Women Can Rely on Us, which will provide training courses for 25,000 women wishing to create their own business, improve existing businesses, receive their secondary education with a technical degree or attend a technological university.

The Walmart de México Foundation is partnering in the project with World Vision Mexico, ProEmpleo, Fonabec, and the Acir Foundation.

“Each day we hear of cases of women, many of them single mothers, who want to set up their own business or improve their existing business, but don’t know how to go about it. Women Can Rely on Us aims to help 25,000 women so they can have the necessary tools to increase their income, improve their quality of life and guarantee food on the table; which is one of the primary objectives of the Walmart de México Foundation,” said Antonio Ocaranza, Director de Corporate Communication for Walmart de México y Centroamérica.
