Project Details

Fundación En Vía is a non-profit organization working with indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Mexico, in the fields of Responsible Tourism, Microfinance and Education.

Who We Are & What We Do:

Fundación En Vía is a non-profit organization which works to alleviate poverty through economic empowerment. We use funds generated through responsible tourism to provide interest-free micro loans and courses on the core concepts of business development to women in 6 communities in the Tlacolula Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico. 

Through the combination of tourism and micro finance, we are able to provide women with access to affordable, comprehensive, and valued financial products. This access gives borrowers the opportunity to create or expand small businesses and empowers them to better provide financially for themselves and their families. 

Where We Work:

Our offices are based in a garden office attached to a language school in central Oaxaca de Juarez (the capital city of Oaxaca state). Oaxaca is widely regarded as one of the cultural hotspots of Mexico, with a vibrant arts and social scene, excellent food that encompasses all the best that Mexico has to offer, stunning scenery, a relaxed vibe and friendly locals. It's a very safe and vibrant city and a fantastic place to base yourself whilst your in Mexico. 

Our History:

We were founded as a project in 2008 and a then registered as an official Mexican organization in 2010. We currently work with over 300 women in 6 local communities. 

Our Goals & Mission:

Our mission is to support the growth and creation of income-generating businesses which promote the strengthening of families and thereby of communities.
