Also, among the objectives set, is the fact of concentrating efforts among all the asopparts so that women are protagonists of the first order and, as a consequence, become generators of employment, obtaining not only individual benefits, but also for the community, the sector in which they work and also as a fundamental part of the development of the country's economy.
