You’ve gone a long way, baby!
The U.S. is spending $900,000 to help women start businesses and create jobs–in Peru and El Salvador.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the new Women’s Entrepreneurship Trust Fund last month on visit to the Peruvian capital of Lima.
“The United States is making an initial contribution of $900,000 to launch pilot programs here in Peru and in El Salvador,” Clinton said on October 16.
“But we need more partners and more contributors to the trust fund, so I’d like to invite other governments and businesses to contribute.”
The money, according to Clinton, will be used to train rural women in Peru and in El Salvador for jobs as entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Whereas women in rural flyover states? Well, they’re already trained as either bitterclinger racists or dependable welfare-state Democrats who vote correctly. So.
The money is part of the U.S.’s Women’s Leadership Initiative, which Clinton announced earlier this year.
Sounds to me like the U.S. Women’s Leadership Initiative is very similar to U.S. foreign policy: both seem to put the U.S. part of the equation last. Which, kismet!
