Erica Donkers, Saskia Fiselier and Marcel Zuidhof are starting a Hotel con Corazón in Oaxaca, Mexico. The hotel is a social enterprise: the net profits will be invested in children's education in Oaxaca, one of the poorest states in the south of Mexico.

By doing this, we want to contribute to a better future and prospects for disadvantaged children in Mexico.

Help us build Hotel con Corazón Mexico! The amount we want to raise through crowdfunding is 150,000 euros (180,000 US dollars).

Our campaign runs until July 31, 2016.

Terms and Conditions

Click here for our terms and conditions regarding these propositions.


  • Hotel con Corazón is a profitable enterprise that runs completely independently once the initial start-up capital has been raised and generates income year after year for the benefit of education.
  • The enterprise is sustainable, offers good working conditions, stimulates the local economy and functions with respect for the local culture and environment.
  • The entire net profits flow back to the local population through investments in education.

Why Oaxaca?

Poverty and poor education are prominent problems in the state of Oaxaca. At the same time, Oaxaca is a popular tourist destination that receives over a million visitors each year. Through tourism, we aim to generate income for the benefit of the local population.


The total planned investment amounts to 500,000 euros (approximately 550,000 US dollars). With that capital, we will build a comfortable 8 to 10-room hotel in the center of Oaxaca. The start-up capital will be raised via crowdfunding, investments, long-term loans and contributions of funds.

In the unexpected event that we will not succeed in raising the total required amount, we will give you the option to get your investment back, or donate it to another Corazón start-up hotel or directly to our existing education program in Nicaragua.
