Youth enterprises in the municipality of Samana, Y2

, , , ,

The project aims to provide technical and financial support for the development of youth led enterprises in the municipality, to improve
and support the livelihood of young people and their commitment to stay in the area, through income generation and employment. These
enterprises will impact the municipality’s economy, creating new businesses and labor opportunities for the local population and
impacting educational, cultural, and social activities.

In 2021 two enterprises were supported and strengthened, one related to coffee production, processing and marketing. The second one is
looking to establish an ornamental nursery. The enterprises were developed by young people between the ages of 14 and 29. 70% of them are are residents of the rural area of the Municipality. We are expecting two more enterprises in 2022.
