During the pandemic in El Salvador, Maryknoll lay missioner Ann Greig asked the women at her soy project what they needed most. The women, most of whom have been earning their livelihoods in the informal market, were having great difficulties eking out a living. They told here they needed to find new ways to make money to support and feed their families.
Ann responded by organizing a series of entrepreneurial workshops that provided skills training for chocolate and piñata making. As they are now finding out, there is always a market for more chocolate and piñatas!
