Report October 2020

With this report we strive to provide our donors with updated information concerning developments within our program “Emprende”.

COVID-19 had a considerable impact on us as an institution and the vulnerable families we are working with.

Despite the complicated context, we were able to renew nine loans for female entrepreneurs affiliated with Mujeres 2000, distributing a total of ARS 115.000 (1481 USD). Thanks to these credits, the women we accompany were able to acquire necessary goods to make their projects grow, such as: Sewing machine, printers and supplies to boost their sales.

We made two more editions of our workshops. In total, 30 new female entrepreneurs began our workshop and graduated. They were trained in the following topics: Budget, business model, costs and communication.

We also added to our training proposal: banking workshops, use of excel, personal brand. On the other hand, we continue with our individual consultancies to enhance their social networks.

We are – especially at this critical moment - enormously grateful for your support as a donor. Your trust in our initiatives is an important source of motivation to overcome the current challenges. Thank you for your support!

Report October 2020

With this report we strive to provide our donors with updated information concerning developments within our program "Familias en Obra."

In lieu of presencial visits, we have shifted our support of these families to the virtual space. Creative tutorials related to housing renovation, repair, and maintenance created by the architects who contribute to the program are sent to the families via WhatsApp. As a result, we are currently channeling our efforts towards the establishment of a post-quarantine strategy. 

We provided 10 families with loans to improve their houses, helping them to improve their quality of living. But we still need help to provide 10 families witch loans in order to continue their construction and improve their household.

In addition, we are identifying professionals within the neighborhoods in fields required in the construction process. These include carpenters and electricians. By working in the most local way possible, we reduce required transportation of materials from the capital city to the surrounding neighborhoods of the province and thus minimize the risk of contagion. 

We are - in the name of every participant of the program “Familias en Obra“- enormously grateful for your support as donor. Your trust in our initiatives is an important source of motivation to overcome all the challenges we face in the daily working process. Thank you!
