What do you do as a strong woman if the men in your family aren’t providing? Well, you take things into your own hands! And that’s exactly what happened at this small Amazonian village. You can also watch and share this video on Facebook and YouTube.

Join me at Sinchi Warmi in Napo, Ecuador to learn the story of these Kichwa women who started an all female run tilapia farm and grew it into a thriving hotel and resort in the heart of the Amazon jungle.

This is the story of determined women who wouldn’t take no for an answer when the men in their community laughed at their idea 12 years ago.

Special thanks to Betty and the Sinchi Warmi Community for your help creating this inspirational video.
