RUBIO HERRERA, Amada. Experiences Lived by Maya Women in Productive Projects: Challenges and Opportunities for the Developmental Plans of Indigenous Groups. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2018, vol.51, pp.229-256. ISSN 0185-2574.

The National Commission for the Development of the Indian Groups of Mexico (CDI for the Spanish terms) supports productive projects for women aiming to incorporate them into development and transform their conditions of life. In this work I analyze the senses and implications a developmental project has given to Maya women and the employees of the state, based on their personal experiences and social representations. An important aspect resulting from the analysis is that there are generally two distinct vision involved in the relationship between the women and the institutions; both visions converge at some points but strongly differ at others. In addition, the membership in an organization is considered to be stimulating by the women involved, while the external agents not only don’t involve at this level but among the prevails the knowledge of common sense before the official and institutional information. The final part of the article is dedicated to a discussion about the role of the CDI in the support of productive groups of women and its commitment to development in general.
