A New Partnership

Introducing the newest Partners Worldwide partnership--Cuenca Partners.

Last Tuesday, during the visit from North American members of the Partners Worldwide team, we signed a partnership agreement to begin actively working together with Cuenca Partners to bring business development under the vision of Business as Mission in the city of Cuenca.

As a volunteer-led group of businesspeople from the Verbo Christian Church of Cuenca, this local partner seeks to engage Christian businesspeople in service while supporting small businesspeople and entrepreneurs through business training, mentoring, and access to capital.  While there is still much work to be done, we hope to host a mentor's training day on October 20 in order to prepare mentors to connect with small business owners who need that extra support of a knowledgeable business professional with expertise in a certain area such as marketing or bookkeeping.  We will be offering a 3-day business training course in January to officially launch this ministry.
