Jackie Brux, professor of economics at UW-River Falls, will present, "Rural
Development and Microenterprise Credit: Strategies that Work for Low Income
Women and their Families in Rural Latin America."

in less developed countries such as Bolivia. To integrate women into the
workforce, Brux will explore concepts like agriculture extension and microenterprise
credit and will outline the research she will conduct this summer in Bolivia.
