Renacer Group's story

The “Renacer” (To be Reborn) committee was born over two years ago thanks to the initiative and support from another committee active in that place at that time. This committee is in Barcequillo and during these two years of intense work they have grown both socially and economically; they are known there for being very hard-working women.

One of the workers is Idalina who sells prepared food to people who pass by her house. Among the items she prepares are: turnovers, breaded steaks, fish stews, locros (a stew composed chiefly of winter squash, potatoes, tender corn, meat or fish), bori-bori (a chicken soup with corn dumplings), etc.

Preparation of all these dishes requires a heavy investment due to gas consumption. Because of this, she wants to buy an electric stove with two-burner slates because they will not use as much energy.

In this group: Idalina, Limpia, Stela, Carmen, Matilde, Edita, Elida, Sandi, Asunción, Apolinaria, Maria, Teofila, Silvia, Laura, Maria, Mirian*, Narciza*, Lucia*
