Promotion of entrepreneurship, productive development and financial inclusion.
The objective of this program is to provide inmates and released inmates the necessary tools and basic knowledge to develop a business proposal from their own life plan. This can be provided to inmates after recovering their freedom or during deprivation, generating tools of life and a business development plan.
This workshop is given inside prisons by people who have recovered their freedom. Inmates and released inmates have been trained in financial education through a workshop "Strategy for financial decision-making" with emphasis in entrepreneurship, creation and strengthening of productive units and business. Also, they have attended other workshops and have been given personalized advice.
In the time elapsed since the opening of “Casa Libertad” 750 released inmates have been trained in financial education in order to guide them in the proper use and saving of money.
Current prison population and recently released inmates are given workshops which teach them the manufacturing of various products in order to empower each person's entrepreneurship abilities.
