El Salvador Trip

Patricia and her team just returned from El Salvador where they are trying to encourage the starting of "Cottage Industries".

The picture is of a young girl from Ahuachapan, in the northern part of El Salvador. Her named is Glenda. Patricia sent her materials to start a bracelet industry. She made $100.00 and opened her first bank account.

The bracelets and small boxes were also sold at the Church "Harvest Festival" where another $207.00 were raised (most adults in Ahuachapan earn less than $200.00 a month). Patricia hopes to expand this endeavor to other young people.
