Center for Puerto Rico Sila M. Calderon: Arduous battle against poverty

Training underprivileged sectors with the intention of creating small businesses that help individuals escape the margins of poverty in the country became the main mission of the Sila M. Calderon Center for Puerto Rico.

From 2009the non-profit organization has provided educational workshops to 3,500 participantsleading to providing economic development tools that, in turn, have generated 1,300 new businesses across the island they employ about 2,000 people.

For the former governor Sila Maria Calderon, founder of the social project, “Our main job is to work with people who want to start a business, people with limited resources who want to lift themselves out of poverty through entrepreneurship.”

“It gives me great satisfaction that after finishing my time in public service, I continue with public service privately. The work to get out of poverty has to be done by the individual themselves, no one can do it for anyone,” the former president admitted.
