Micro-financing for women entrepreneurs in the small villages around Oaxaca City is about as responsible and reaffirming as you could possibly get, even more so on vacation. Envia works out of the beautiful old house that is the Oaxaca Cultural Center, which is itself a great place to visit. The tour, which lasts about 6 hours, starts there, in Envia's comfortable, new van, and takes guests, who pay 650pesos each, all of which is used in funding new loans, to visit the borrowers in their workshops and businesses, ranging from weavers and leather workers, to restaurants and internet spots. These women are making a difference in their communities, and Envia is making a difference in their lives. The tour is an eye-opener into a world most people only read about. It is a friendly experience, with everyone happy to meet and exchange, and there is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to purchase the products the women make. The staff of Envia are dedicated to making their program work, and they share their enthusiasm and expertise with their guests, who get a chance to see some out of the ordinary locations that are not usually on the tourist's map. Take this tour when you go to Oaxaca.
