Driving New Economic Opportunities
We actively work alongside the community and our partners to create, design and execute programs that contribute to the development of small and micro enterprises (SMEs) in the local community.
Through workshops, access to financing and technical training, we promote the incorporation of local producers and entrepreneurs into the sustainable tourism value chain of the region, which is increasingly attracting tourism investment and will demand high-quality goods and services.

¡MICHES, SÍ! PROGRAM
¡Miches, sí! (or “Miches, Yes!”) a business program focused on strengthening local SMEs and supporting new ventures that cater to tourism and agricultural sustainability, through training and access to financing.
¡Miches, sí! supports the entrepreneur to develop a plan to establish a new business or to redefine or strengthen an existing business plan. At the same time, it enables those who take this training to participate in a business contest to access non-reimbursable seed capital.
