This support comes from the Production Program for Indigenous Women’s Organizations (Programa de Organizaciones Productivas para Mujeres Indígenas). The project consists basically in the development of Turkey Farm, that will anable this group of women to commercialize the product and start regional business that will grow in time and become a constant source of income for these group of Mayan ladies.

This project has been financed with State and Federal resources with a total of $123, 087. 78 pesos.

Infrastructure , food, medicines and vitamins for the birds are being provided as well. And even the creation of a marketing campaign is contemplated. The idea is that the 8 women can contribute to the economic support of their homes.
