About Emprendo Hoy

Problem - In many instances, in Peru, self-employment is the only route into the labor market for people with disabilities. Every day we speak with service recipients like Gloria, a wheelchair user who can't find employment. People with disabilities may face workplace discrimination, have accessibility issues, or be undereducated. Solution - We have created an online community for aspiring entrepreneurs like Gloria who live with a disability and provide support such as free courses and resources, mentoring, funding access, and more.


We provide access to courses and resources related to entrepreneurship.


We have mentors who could help members move forward with their business idea.


We educate members about sources of financing.


Members join our community of entrepreneurs.
