The goal of this project was to provide Monteverde Wholefoods, a local grocery store in Monteverde, Costa Rica, with the materials needed to empower female prospective business owners in Monteverde to distribute their products at the store. Document analysis and semi-structured interviews with the store staff as well as current and aspiring entrepreneurs were utilized to create an informational handbook. The handbook contains: a collection of personal stories from suppliers, a guide to the legalization processes for different products, an overview of the Business Model Canvas, and comparisons of local grant application services. We also developed two case studies to provide Monteverde Wholefoods with context for supporting women in difficult financial and homelife situations.
