After providing access to safe drinking water in Los Cambrones homes, San Juan de la Maguana, through an aqueduct system powered by solar energy as a mechanism to strengthen the improvement of the quality of resilience and community innovation, we are implementing a sustainable community development program, thanks to the Small Subsidy the Global Environment Fund (PPS-SGP/GEF/UNDP) grants.
Together with Junior Achievement Dominicana @jadominicana we signed an agreement to offer a training program for twenty-five women and men with low-income, who live in the remote community, who have identified an opportunity of a business consisting of a candy factory that will operate with solar energy and are in process of entrepreneurship training.
The program develops entrepreneurial characteristics and shows participants the process for creating and installing their company, taking into account feasibility and quality criteria.
With the name “Dulcería Los Cambrones”, and the motto “The Sweetest in San Juan” , 25 women and men from the community of Los Cambrones named their candy store startup on October. They are happy to receive support of our foundation and the Ministry of Agriculture through the Women’s Agricultural Sectoral Office (OSAM).
Women in #DulceríaLosCambrones welcomed Israel Urraca and Jamlet de Jesús with joy in December 2019 from the @banreservasrd #COOPERA program, who presented to this venture the opportunity to form a cooperative for the development and growth of their businesses. They’re all happy about the opportunity it represents for them to belong to this valuable #ResponsabilidadSocial program.
Thanks to the Small Subsidy the Global Environment Fund (PPS-SGP/GEF/UNDP), this project will be a reality and a contribution to the community’s development 🏘and the country.
