In Peru, Mentors International has been transforming lives since 2003. However, despite recent economic improvements in some industries, poverty still affects over a quarter of the population, with rural areas being the most vulnerable.
The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a harsh blow to many Peruvians, causing significant losses in employment and income. Still, today families are struggling to make ends meet, with many facing debt and insufficient savings.
But through our personalized mentoring, job-focused training, and micro-loans, we’re able to empower individuals and families to start businesses, find employment, and gain financial stability. This allows families to break free from the cycle of poverty and achieve sustainable self-reliance.
