One evening in 2010 in the remote town of Santa Cruz in Bolivia, the founder of a small non-profit held a town hall meeting for widows. There, the widows were asked to elucidate on their dreams to work, provide for their families, and find financial security if given a chance. The widows responded with insightful and very tangible dreams. They only needed someone to give them a chance. Armed with the widows’ dreams, aspirations, and prospects for profitability, Fundacion Amor y Esperanza met with the GFW in New York, where the partnership was born.
