That’s where our journey begins
Newton Running and Trickle Up have joined forces to help women in Guatemala create their own small businesses. In Guatemala, 9.3% of people live on less than $1.90 a day. Newton Running is sponsoring the women of Rio Jolomche savings group so they can increase their incomes, access credit, and save for their families’ futures.
Over the next 18 months, we’ll be following Carmelina, Aurora, Petronila, and their Trickle Up savings group in Jolomche, a small enclave in Tamahú, Guatemala. Join them on their journey as they confront extreme poverty by coming together to find a voice in their households and communities, build new friendships, and motivate each other. Check back for updates on their triumphs and challenges and share what motivates you to #runwithpurpose.
