“I got to know Work is Progress of the Soleterre Foundation at a very difficult time because I had lost my job due to Covid. It helped me acquire new skills and find a new area of work, thus also solving my housing problems.”

“Soleterre with its projects does not give us ready-made fish on the table, but teaches us how to fish. This helps us understand that in order to move forward we, rural women who benefit from the projects, must also do our part. For example, when I received the funds for the production of natural disinfectants, they also explained to me all the administrative aspects and, since I can't read well, my nephew accompanied me, so he became part of the family business. It is good that poor people are involved and that the Soleterre team supports us on complex issues, such as the development of the business plan, always explaining to us that the most important thing is our business idea as this is what we have to develop. I have seen Soleterre accompanying many women and young entrepreneurs in rural areas where the funds to promote inclusive development projects hardly ever arrive.”

“I see in Soleterre a team that promotes local development starting from the people who live in their own community context. Women, young people and children from vulnerable areas are the protagonists of growth processes, and this is good because they are not simply given assistance, but they themselves build their own development. There are women and young people, including several migrants who have returned from Italy, who have started a business thanks to Soleterre's continuous support. During the pandemic I was able to see that Soleterre is not only present in the territory in good times, but also in emergencies. In fact, in Chalatenango they have been at the forefront of education, health and citizen participation.”
