Women in Hidalgo have limited support in promoting their agricultural enterprises, which contributes to a low level of income. Ñepi Behña, A.C. provides technical assistance to members of the all-women Ya Muntsi Behña cooperative in the principles of fair trade and gender equality and helps them develop skills in administration, organization, leadership and marketing. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Mexico. Ñepi Behña’s activities encourage small business growth, local entrepreneurship and market development to ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
