I am writing for a friend, who is doing research on the area of Tampico,
Mexico. She is looking for needs assessments done for the region, and if
there is potential for action anthropology or community development. Her
request is not limited to the areas above; she is looking for any
research done in the area. Her main focal point is women married to men
who spend months at a time away at either migratory work or jobs in the
US. She wants to know the impact of his absence on the wife and
children. Again, she is not limiting her area of research to just that
one point. Information for that area is proving difficult for her to locate
and she would be very grateful if someone could give her a nudge in the right

Thank you,
