The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has approved two loans totaling $20 million to implement the Ciudad Mujer program in Honduras. The loans, together with a $460,000 grant, will finance technical support needed to adapt the model created in El Salvador – and implemented at four centers located in the departments of Francisco Morazán, Cortés, Olancho and Atlántida – to Honduras’ reality and needs.
The project, managed by the Development and Social Inclusion Secretariat, seeks to improve Honduran women’s living conditions in areas such as workplace participation, sexual and reproductive health, violence prevention and care, and teen pregnancy prevention. It also aims to improve socio-economic opportunities for underage women at risk of irregular migration and for returned women-an initiative supported by the Alliance for Prosperity in the Northern Triangle.
