Entrepreneurial Programme for Employee Partners
In recent years Molycop Peru has focused its community program on providing specific training programs for the wives and partners of its employees. The first program, of around 100 hours of direct training, involved developing entrepreneurial skills such as the generation of business ideas and financial management. It is intended to assist the partners of employees to establish small commercial enterprises.
Since its introduction, participants have made good use of the program by establishing businesses such as small-scale retail and transport for local children. The second program, also around 100 hours, was designed to develop life skills such as self-confidence and communication and is known to have been of benefit to the families of employees.
