Tics as a Mechanism to Energize the Microeconomy for Poverty Reduction


Objective: Analyze the different ways in which Information and Communications Technology (ICTs) linked in a micro economy succeed in expanding strategies for the creation of commercial projects and their national and international dissemination. Methodology: In order to achieve the proposed objective, a qualitative methodology was proposed which, based on a documentary review in both the English and Spanish languages, extracted the most relevant aspects in order to respond to the subject matter under study. Findings: The poorest communities in Colombia experience a series of ignorance’s in the use of ICTs, represented by misuse, affordability and/or inexperience for the incorporation of these new mechanisms in lifestyles, therefore, ICT-focused education should be promoted. Application: The ICT training will be crucial to drive new business and commercial dynamics; therefore, its relevance takes on great significance in the processes of impulse to overcome poverty, an aspect that should be promoted in all educational instances.
