New project in Guatemala: women and youth at the heart of sustainable economic growth

Pedro Rodriguez 30 April 2019

A key partner country in the SOCODEVI story, Guatemala is the most populated nation in Central America but also the one with the highest rates of poverty, especially in rural areas. In some regions, 80% of the population lives in poverty despite significant economic potential. Furthermore, the exclusion of women and their confinement to informal sectors of the economy only makes the situation worse.
