Empresario Comunitario is a program to help residents of Holyoke learn important skills which are vital to accomplishing goals like buying a home or owning a business. Skills taught include personal money management and credit building, with more advanced programs available as participants advance in their knowledge.
Beyond money management, we extend our philosophy of farming as an emotionally beneficial practice that should be integrated into our lives to Empresario Comunitario as well. The program matches aspiring entrepreneurs with farmers. The entrepreneurs help the farmers with marketing and products, while the farmers help the entrepreneurs learn about nutrition and exercise.
