Entrepreneurship projects

Go Lupe

Go Lupe

Restaurante Interno

Restaurante Intenro

"Interno" is the first restaurant in the world open to the public in a women's prison. It is a unique model of social reintegration and without doubt an example of re-socialization. This generates innovative spaces of reconciliation between the prison and the civilian population, where the traditions of the region are enhanced and presented, which in turn allows for the improvement of the prison, social and tourism sector of the Colombian Caribbean area.
