It can be said there is diversity in terms of the general composition of the group; single mothers, housewives, students, merchants, elderly community members, and young men and women as well. This gives the group a balance in terms of experience.
Just like any other group, this one has had its highs and lows. However, they have shown much optimism and perseverance. This group of women has lifted itself up and strengthened with the incorporation of more community members. After losing five fundamental members last fall, the group reorganized themselves early this year and is now composed of 15 women and their board of directors that was chosen March 17. The following is a list of the existing board of directors:
President: Fernanda Garcia, Vice President: Xiomara Pinto, Secretary: Alba Sanchez, Treasurer: Doris Jovel, Fiscal: Sulma Cantillano, Vocal I: Sonia Murillo, Vocal II: Maria Aurelia Guevara
Meeting schedules are set for every Thursday at 2:00 PM. The women’s group has solicited equipment and kitchen utensils valued at L. 100,000.00 to the organization, CARE International. According to their organizational liaison, the request has been approved. It should be noted that the group of women has already identified their short and long term goals and objectives which will be incorporated in their working agenda.
