Economic Development

We have worked with community members improve their economic prospects. Examples include the Sewing and Mixtamal Programs.


Mixtamal Program

The Mixtamal or Corn Grinding Program is one that has been ongoing since 2004 when the grinding sheds and equipment were built and installed. At the time of the 2012 mission neither of the corn grinders were operating, in part that the people felt the cost of having corn ground was too much and in part because the grinder in Volcancito needs repairs. The repairs were authorized and discussion took place such that the grinding fees were reduced to Q10 to make it much more affordable.
