Honduras: Cooperativa Multiservicios

Cooperativa Multiservicios is a non-profit entity which provides micro industry training and equipment loans to former gang members wishing to learn a trade and start a small business. 

Supported by the Regional Youth Alliance / Alianza Joven Regional employment creation project Challenge 100 /Desafio 100, the multiservice group have trained youth in welding, ecological landscaping, floor waxing and transportation dispatching among other skills.   By researching local labor market trends and services with a local demand, the multiservice group has had a higher degree of success placing former gang members in sustainable self-employment or micro enterprises than other programs.
