Investours Applauds Community Leader Giving Back

September 18, 2013

Watch this clip and BE INSPIRED by Doña Plazola, a powerhouse, community leader and a very proud Mexican. (Investours)

We took this video because we believe Doña Plazola is a community leader worth recognizing in Riviera Nayarit.

While her main job is to run a small store from her house, she spends her evenings teaching women from her community different crafts and lobbying to get government funding for people in need.

She isn't paid for this labor, but has been able to raise thousands of dollars to assist families with food, medical, and housing expenses.

She has also empowered countless women through her free crafts classes (the materials are subsidized with government funds). This woman is as selfless as she is resourceful. Gracias, Doña Plazola!

This week is all about celebrating Mexico...and its people.

Watch the above video and BE INSPIRED by Doña Plazola, a powerhouse, community leader and a very proud Mexican.

Please share this video and help us recognize the people who make this country such a fantastic place to be.
