Project Launch:

A women-led 15 member economic cooperative in Southern Costa Rica has spent over six years selling agricultural wares at a local community market. As the group has grown, so have its ambitions. This project seeks the purchase of cooking supplies, food service materials, and a microwave so the cooperative can operate its own kitchen to serve food to patrons at the community market. The revenues from the operation will allow members to earn a profit and grow their enterprise over the course of the next year.
