Project Launch:

The Asociacion de Mujeres Empresarias de Jicaral is an all-woman Costa Rican business cooperative that specializes in the production of health and beauty products made from locally obtained honey. As the business has grown, the team of 10 businesswomen has struggled to keep up with the demands of marketing their products in new stores. The operation has generally relied on the women filling and jarring their products by hand, a laborious and time-consuming practice. This project seeks funds to purchase two machines that will allow the women to fill and jar their products in containers, increasing efficiency, cleanliness, and output, and allowing more time to be spent on developing their brand in new territories.
