The New Idea
Iliana Pereyra is adding radio to the mix of services and programs aimed at supporting Uruguayan rural women's income-generating efforts. The weekly radio show features interviews with successful women entrepreneurs, who share their techniques, experiences, and knowledge. The show also directs the women to useful resources and provides advice about ways the women can overcome the barriers of isolation and inexperience that plague rural home enterprise activities.
