CODESPA AMERICA's mission is to empower the poor in their professional lives and integrate them into local markets, enabling them to provide for their families and for their futures. We foster the spirit of entrepreneurship, personal human dignity and sense of accomplishment that comes with economic independence and professional contribution to the community. We implement development projects creating economic opportunities for the poor in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

We approach the poor not as savior but as companion. Our teams reside in the countries where we operate and work with the poor in rural areas and distressed urban neighborhoods. We provide them with the professional formation, financial credit, business training and low-cost technology they need to improve their product quality, increase their productivity and sell their goods on the market.
CODESPA America is proud to work in close connection with the technical expertise, project portfolio and network of Fundación CODESPA.
