Women’s Department is proud to celebrate the global recognition of ‘Rising Stars Women’s Group’ of San Victor Village, Corozal District. This group of innovate sewing entrepreneurs and community leaders, who was a recipient of seed capital funding from Beltraide’s 2016 Emprende grant, are featured in Beltraide’s “Invest Belize Magazine” Volume 7. This is a primary resource for information on businesses in Belize including national development, investment, trade and entrepreneurship initiatives and opportunities. The talent of this group of women has grown from accessing skills training in sewing and computer software through Women’s Department, to producing school uniforms and school bags for institutions countrywide, and as of recent, has evolved into collaboration with Ministry of Health in the production of PPE’s in the country’s response to Covid 19. We celebrate entrepreneurs who have turned their passions into opportunities and have impacted their families and the broader community in positive ways.
