In Germany, Dr, Annette Leonhard-MacDonald is doing her part to not only break through the barriers that exist for women in the tech industry by becoming a successful entrepreneur, she's holding the door open and making room for other women in the process.

In this week’s episode we are coming to you from our Willow Tree Roots Women’s Socioeconomic Empowerment Project site in Pachacutec, Peru where I talk to our entrepreneur in training Manuela Peche. Pachacutec is a shantytown village located in the slum districts outside of Lima, Peru and was established in 2000 after more than 12,000 families were forcibly relocated to the area for political reasons. It is currently home to 150,000 people, with more arriving every day. Ninety-six percent of the population lives in extreme poverty and more than 30% of homes have inadequate basic services. Manuela became a mother at 20 years old and comes to our project site to learn how to become a skilled seamstress and entrepreneur by running her own tailoring business to give her children education and help her parents.
