Salsa Anyone?

During the last leg of our recent CareLink Honduras trip we met with a remarkable group of women that are interested in launching a micro-funded Salsa business, using peppers they grow from their small farm outside Tegucigalpa. These 10 women, who recently launched their small farm as a way to seek financial independence and relief from domestic violence and oppression, are now seeking capital to expand their business, manufacturing salsa and other pepper sauces for distribution in local grocery stores and restaurants. CareLink is working with them on this partnership. Way to go, ladies! Want to be a part of a “hand up”…not a “hand-out”? come join us at CareLinkFoundation.org.

“The Story of a Worn-Out Oven”
Nearly 8 years ago, CareLink funded our very first micro-finance recipient in Honduras, Margoth. Margoth launched a tortilla shop out of her humble home, which has been instrumental to her ability to provide for her family, send her children to school, and break the cycle of dependance. Margoth has re-paid her micro-finance loan and is thriving. Eight years later, we have now provided funding for a new tortilla oven for Margoth….because she has essentially “worn out” her oven! Congrats Margoth! We are so proud of you, and so pleased to play a part in your ability to achieve independence and financial transformation. Want to join us in introducing Honduran women to the power of entrepreneurial independence? Visit us at CareLinkFoundation.org. We are “teaching people to fish” so they can live a life of financial freedom and self-reliance.

After only four short months, the Honduran ladies we funded to start their bread making business, Pancita Felize (means “Happy Tummies”), are profitable, have re-paid their micro loan to us, and are expanding! Shown here is our baking expert, Emerson, training the ladies on how to make specialty cookies.
