The Department of State will launch the Pathways Access Initiative (PAI) in Peru on February 25, 2011. The program is part of Pathways to Prosperity in the Americas and its goal is to help connect U.S. businesses with women-owned businesses (WOBs) in Peru.
Qualified women entrepreneurs will be recruited, trained and certified by WEConnect International, the non-governmental organization that will serve as implementer of PAI. WEConnect International will partner these entrepreneurs with U.S. corporations through a global online bilingual portal.
For further information about PAI, please contact Shelly Porges (Tel: 202-647 0079) and Anne Park (Tel: 202-632 3567) from the Office of Commercial and Business Affairs.
