Our absolute favorite thing about the countries we serve in is OUR CLIENTS! Our clients are hardworking, inspiring, and a joy to be around. They have great relationships with the mentors and they have the most inspiring desire to run successful businesses. They are the reason we do what we do, and the reason we have expeditions in the first place.
While each expedition is uniquely tailored to the individuals traveling, the common thread through them all is our desire to connect with our clients. For the first half of the expedition, we visit our clients’ shops, get a tour of their farms, speak with them, and learn of their stories. If expeditioners specialize in their type of business, they are able to provide on-site mentoring and assistance that will help the business owner. By using your specialties to grow the businesses of our clients, they are receiving unique training that will help their business succeed.
Ana Lucia and her children stand outside their home and business. She started her business because when she went to go buy school supplies for her children, the prices for basic items were unjust. She decided she would start a good honest business to help others in her area by providing school supplied, copies, and calling cards. Ana Lucia recently graduated from our financial literacy program. Her daughter said, “My mom works hard for me and my brothers. I want her to succeed.” Seeing her mom work hard and achieve things has expanded her horizon to do the same. At school, she said the person that gets the highest grades in English this year gets a trip to Canada. It excites her to think that she could be the one to travel there one day!
