A grant from FedEx allowed me to travel to Jalpan, Mexico, where Jonathan de Jesus Muñoz runs Blokera Muñoz, a concrete company. Jonathon says that JA gave him access to the training and support he needed to start a business in Mexico, instead of emigrating to the U.S. for higher wages: “As for JA (Impulsa), I feel that I will be eternally grateful for the training they gave me.” Traveling to the beautiful Japan, Mexico was priceless. Jonathan created this concrete company in an area that didn’t have concrete only kiln fired brick to create homes and those bricks just don’t last. His company is successful and he is grateful to what he learned about business with JA Worldwide (Mexico).
Location: Jalpan, Mexico.
