A local empowerment agent is the micro-entrepreneur's direct connection to People-First Tourism. As a local empowerment agent, you know the most about your own community and can help People- First Tourism recruit new micro-entrepreneurs to join the project. Through this connection, local businesses may directly benefit from a growth in tourism and, in effect, contribute to a stronger local economy. Entrepreneurs will work with empowerment agents to get started and grow business operations, and will value the personal relationship and trust that they will gain by working locally. Tourists will benefit from knowing that a trusted person or organization is connecting them to a whole new kind of tourism experience. In addition, they'll enjoy knowing they are supporting the empowerment of small businesses and gaining knowledge of local culture at the same time. If you are interested in becoming an empowerment agent, or would like to learn more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Empowerment agents are crucial to the growth of People First Tourism and to the sustainability of local small businesses.
