According to studies, 40% of the workforce in Peru works in the informal economy, and domestic workers are one of the most vulnerable groups.
AGTR operates an employment agency for domestic workers called, “La Casa de Panchita.” The agency provides tailored and comprehensive training to domestic workers, from cooking to child and elderly care. It then places these highly skilled workers in formal and dignified employment opportunities, while generating sustainable income for the organization by charging a fee to the employer.
- Casa Panchita provided employment to 313 women in 2012, a 45% growth from 2010.
- 20% growth in social enterprise annual income from 2010 to 2012.
