Improving the quality of human resources extending from women’s role in providing
education to their children to their impact on other women reflect female empowerment. In Cañete province, a professional training centre named “Condoray”, was chosen for the analysis. The objective of this paper is 1) to gain a better understanding of the relationships between empowerment indicators and 2) to characterize clusters of different rural promoters of the Condoray Institute under the background factors that affect them. A survey was developed and administered to a sample of 31 female rural promoters in February 2015. By means of a Principal Component Analysis (PCA), three main pathway matrixes of female empowerment were extracted: material, relational and perceptual. Additionally, rural promoters were profiled through three clusters: “traditional”, “contemporary” and “modern”, with relatively similar socio-economic characteristics but different evaluation methods
towards the three pathway matrixes. The Condoray Institute should target different training programs according to their different profiles and needs in order to be disseminated in their communities. To add, it is considered relevant to expand the knowledge to other women who live in distant districts of the Cañete province.
