About Fundacion En Via
En Via is a non-profit microfinance organization working to fight poverty around Oaxaca, and to educate travelers about the power of microfinance by connecting them with local women either through visits to their towns, or through our volunteer program teaching free English classes to women and children. On the visits, travelers meet women who are applying for micro-loans to start or expand their small businesses, from making tortillas to weaving beautiful rugs, to selling flowers in the local market. Participants hear about the women's lives and projects, and what they plan to do with their loans. At the end of the day, the profits from the tours fund En Via's micro-loan and education programs.

This tour was so inspiring and impactful for my husband and me. The very knowledgeable guides (Nadia and Karen) took us to the living/working places of three incredible women artists/small business owners where we learned not only about their work but also about how En Via supports these women with small (tiny!) no interest loans so that they can grow their businesses and learn good, solid information about how to run a small business. Theses women were inspiring because they have done so much with so little and they are growing their successful businesses to support their families AND their communities. Oh! And not to mention we had lunch at the first place we stopped (an organic farm that has been able to expend and add a patio dining experience) and it was amazing! This tour is definitely a must-do!

I visited the home of artisans Patricia, Reina and Asunción in Teotitlán del Valle on Dia de Muertos with Fundacion En Via. The women and their family graciously opened their home to us on a very personal day of celebration and reflection. I highly recommend going on any En Via tour for an authentic Oaxacan experience.

My sister and I were fortunate to participate in an En Via tour of two weavers, an animal raiser and a tortilla maker. All who had benefitted from interest free microloans. We were able to talk with all and learned much about their business and their communities. We feel very fortunate to have had this opportunity.

We had a wonderful Day of the Dead experience. We visited the home/workshop of three women artisans. They demonstrated their crafts and also asked us to join them to the creation of their altar and the welcoming of their families' spirits. The experience was beautiful, intimate and felt very authentic. In addition to the tour being truly awesome, we really appreciated the way nearly 90% of our tour fee goes back to EnVia's micro-loan program facilitating these women artists and their economic independence and success. This is a fabulous organization and wonderful experience.

I went on a Day of the Dead tour with this group. It was amazing. Not only did we get to support the micro loan program but we had an experience that was unforgettable.
