Mexican entrepreneur shares with Belizean women

A Mexican entrepreneur travelled from Merida to share her experiences as an entrepreneur with Belizean women. The workshop called Women´s Empowerment took place at the Embassy of Mexico today. The goal to provide participants with basic training and tools to open a small business and enhance self-esteem, by all accounts, was a success. News Five spoke to Enayda Medrano about the content of today’s session.

“I came from Merida Yucatan, I own a small business. I came to show the ladies here how to do it more easy. I display my experience and I bring some materials. They like to do it.”

Jose Sanchez

“And the women who are here, what is the interaction like?”

“I think the woman in this moment in all of the world is going to need to work outside of the house and it is so difficult for the woman. She needs to fix your time, your company and your family. And I think it is necessary for the men to begin to help in the house because two persons need to work. The problem at this moment is that when the woman outside to work, the boys are not careful because the two person work outside and that is a big problem. But if they mix their time; it is going to be easy. I am sure it going to be easier. More of the company needs experience in a small company and if you see eighty percent experience. If the work is open now, you need to prepare for the opening.”

Medrano owns a small business called “Creaciones del Angel” in Merida.  Her involvement is part of a women´s project of the Mexican Business Council for Foreign Trade, Investment and Technology (COMCE) that supports business development.  On the Belize end of the session, the exercise was part of the Access to Justice Project of the Women’s Issues Network (WIN-Belize).
