Escuchame Baseline Report

Grameen Foundation USA, in partnership with ODEF Financiera (ODEF) a financial service provider (FSP) headquartered out of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, launched the Escúchame project (meaning “Listen to Me” in English and is an acronym for the full project name: Economic Security for Honduran women entrepreneurs through Education and Male Engagement) with the goal to develop empowering ecosystems for women entrepreneurs in Honduras by engaging men as allies. Escúchame project objectives include: 1) Advance women’s economic security by expanding access to financial and non-financial services to women-led and women-owned micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that enhance business growth and resilience; and 2) Address harmful social and gender norms and enable safe work environments by conducting intrahousehold dialogues (IHDs) that engage men as allies for women involved in MSMEs.
