Most of Sapa local guides have been trekking guides for many years, sometimes working independently either through daily contacts with tourists or from recommendation via previous tourists but mostly they work for the hotels and tour companies generally at a much reduced rate. After few months in Sapa, we have founded that people here have quite good English speaking skills and can understand the road, customs and other tourist attractions in the locality.

Sapa local guides (becoming business owners)

To take advantage of this skill, we will train a group of 10 guides women to become a professional business owners. This option will allow them to develop a stable income source compared to the income they received today…

Muong Hoa Sapa (the local company)

According to our survey, Sapa is a famous tourist destination and attracts many tourists every year; however, local people have not benefited from these services. Outside businesses mainly profit from these services. For that reason, we will create “The local company” and 10 qualified guides will receive 10% of shares upon formation (Muong Hoa JSC) Thus, our plan to train those women as business owners, helping the local people benefit from the tourist potential in Sapa.
