Summary:  In Brazil, 2 million children up to five years old are not enrolled in public daycare centers because centers don’t have enough vacancies or are too far. mopi fills this gap by empowering women entrepreneurs with pedagogical and managerial training and resources to run their own childcare centers. Thus, children can develop and get ready for school while their parents join the workforce and increase household income.
