Sustainable Development as a Solution To Inequality Amongst Rural Women Of El Salvador: an Exploratory Case Study

Lopez, Marilyn Denise

Agencies and NGOs were selected by a convenience, purposive sample due to the impact they have had on women when referring to their rights, poverty issues and sustainable development projects. Semi-structured interviews were performed with each aid group which in turn helped support the secondary data. Furthermore, 61 rural women agreed to participate in a survey with an open-ended question that allowed the investigator to glimpse into their life structure as well as to see the levels of impact aid groups have had in their lives and to see if projects in the area of sustainable development have positively impacted their lives. The results of this study show that rural women who implemented sustainable development projects into their daily routine had improved living conditions and a more positive outlook on life when compared to women who had no exposure to sustainable development projects.
