Prosperidad Group's story

The “Prosperidad” (Prosperity) committee was formed when several neighbors in the city of Villa Elisa decided to join together. All of the group members have independent activities: some are in sales, others are hairdressers and some prepare fast food.

The members formed a very unified and capable group able to undertake activities together that strengthen their companionship.

One of the group members is Aurelia R. who sells food in a small snack bar in her home. She gets up very early in the morning every day to prepare traditional dishes from the area like: empanadas (turnovers), milanesas (breaded meat), eggs and chipas (corn and cheese bread). Her meals are prepared very hygienically with new and fresh ingredients so customers come by frequently to enjoy Aurelia’s dishes.

She is asking for funding to buy the ingredients that she normally uses to prepare her meals.

In this group: Aurelia Rosa, Catalina, Vidalia, Lidia, Mabel, Myrian, Wilma, Margarita, Gloria, Graciela, Norma, Virna, Adelaida, Estelvina, Ninfa, Sonia
