Young entrepreneurs in Peru
More and more Peruvian youngsters from families with limited economic means move to the city hoping to start a better life there. Unfortunately, they often end up in even worse living conditions. That is why non-profit organisation Solid created the Jovem training. This agricultural training focuses on young people between 15 and 23 in the Ayacuchan Andes. They develop into successful agricultural entrepreneurs thanks to the practical and qualitative farming training. They have farming techniques classes, but also study themes such as business management and personal development. After an intensive 2‑year training and coaching, they start their own business in the 3rd year. The result? The young people discover rural life and use their talents for the benefit of the community.
