En Via is a non-profit microfinance organization working to fight poverty around Oaxaca, and to educate travelers about the power of microfinance by connecting them with local women either through visits to their towns, or through our volunteer program teaching free English classes to women and children. On the visits, travelers meet women who are applying for micro-loans to start or expand their small businesses, from making tortillas to weaving beautiful rugs, to selling flowers in the local market. Participants hear about the women's lives and projects, and what they plan to do with their loans. At the end of the day, the profits from the tours fund En Via's micro-loan and education programs.

We'd give our 5 day En Via project tour 10 stars if we could. Even if you have only 1 day to spend with En Via, don't miss this authentic and meaningful experience. Great people, great mission, great results.

The women speak in Spanish to an interpreter. (then interpreter puts it in English). I think if you asked, the interpreter would be happy to interpret what the Fundacion reps are saying.
