Mission Statement

Fundación En Vía is a non-profit organization working with indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Mexico. En Via is committed to supporting social and community development through the combination of three main programs: microfinance, responsible tourism, and education.

Description

We began working with communities in Oaxaca in 2008 and were formally founded in 2010. En Vía’s no-interest loans, generated from our microfinance tours, ensure that our borrowers have a more viable option than commercial banks, which lend at an average interest rate of 70% in Mexico. Our borrowers are then able to leverage their loans to have a real impact on their small businesses, their lives and ultimately the entire community.

We offer a variety of educational programs such as English and Internet classes, as well as business classes in the local communities of Oaxaca. Our programs are supported by a wonderful team of volunteers, including our team of volunteer English teachers. As a volunteer, you can really make a difference in the communities!
