Caguas, a story of resilience


Caguas, Puerto Rico has had its share of disasters over the past few years. The financial crisis in Puerto Rico, Hurricanes Irma and Maria, earthquakes and most recently COVID.


In this MYD Global episode we speak with Zamia Baerga-Torres, Secretary of Economic Development at Autonomous Municipality of Caguas about the great work she and her organization are doing to help small businesses recover and succeed.


After the hurricanes, Zamia's organization spent a lot of time accessing resources, and putting preparedness steps in place to address "when" the next disaster would happen not "if".


Her story truly is a great example of how putting plans into place prior to a disaster helps you be more responsive and resilient.
