Nitlapan promotes concrete local development initiatives by providing a set of financial and non-financial services to micro, small and medium rural and urban businesses, especially those of women and young people. It does this within ongoing analysis, systematization and validation of all local experiences that yielded successful results and could be replicated in other territories or converted into inputs for the design of development policies in alliance with state institutions, civil society organizations, the private business sector and international development cooperation agencies. As a research and development institute of the UCA associated with the Jesuit Network of Social Works, it is dedicated to innovation; technical, business and legal advice; formation of human capital and advocacy on public policies to promote the design and application of competitive and inclusive rural development models articulated to the local, national and Central American urban sectors.
