Work Description X Close
For 4 years, I had the opportunity to work in “Community Credit” field, in Lower Lauretian region from Quebec in organizations dedicated to respond to the ever increasing demands from persons marginalized by their financial situation. In order to improve their situation, I supported them with a close accompaniment to create or improve their business plan and the establishment of their financial statement. I evaluated their needs to offer them financing in the form of micro-credit to help them either startup their own enterprise or became self-employed. Mainly, my clients were women and young people.
Interested in young community, I worked in “Jeunes Volontaires”, program that help young people to acquire work experience and develop skills by financing their project in order to get a job or startup their own business. With the JA Canada program, I taught students how to start and manage a business. This program gave them the confidence and skills they needed to develop a business project.
In 2013 I founded Emprende Baurau – Centro de Entrepreneurship in Mexico. We are a business consultant group that works with clients on strategy, management and problem solving, and helps clients develop business skills and knowledge.
My last 10 years of work, I have developed the entrepreneurial culture in my community working as a speaker, trainer, consultant, professor and developing educational programs.
Why? Because is very important to help discover entrepreneurship as a winning career option for our young people.
