The economy of the Department of Putumayo has been characterized by coca crops and oil extraction. From the Integral BPRM humanitarian attention program we work with components of income generation, psychosocial, reproductive health care, and the prevention of gender-based violence. In this way, you are committed to our participants undertaking projects to break illegal economies and inequality.
Ana Maria is involved for two years in the program and smiling affirms that: "Thanks to the program have learned to perform by itself, with what I know to do". One of the objectives of the programme is to provide knowledge and tools to support the projects of participants through training in income generation.
With training, Ana Maria learned to reduce losses from your business in the following manner: "I first offer products, took the order and then do them. I always made my stuff depending on someone else but now work on my own and so have kept my business without losses."
Diana Quintero, advises psychosocial program, commented: "Ana lived tormented with a problem you had when she was a child but support workshops with psychosocial has managed to handle and release many feelings that stung her".
Mercy Corps empowers to them people to succeed on the adversity, improve their quality of life and transform your community.
