FOCAEP, through its reimbursable and non-reimbursable financial lines, has the main goal of achieving the economic development of women and families to fortify and develop their capacity for strategic life-decision making in a context of equality. We offer access to soft financing and promote the development of specific abilities in women.

It is imperative to achieve the economic empowerment—that is, the real empowerment—of women, strengthening and growing their decision-making ability in a context of equality in places that have consistently denied them this possibility. This implies talking about violence against women.

For FOCAEP, the general approach of any initiative should be human rights, even when talking about thematic projects. The integrity of these strategies is a requisite for assuring the equality, respect and dignity of all people, keeping in mind that most of the people who live in poverty are women, girls and boys.
