Guatemala has been wonderful!

Felipa and Hermalinda from Women in Action, with Don Julio calmly at the helm, took me to several places: we stopped in eat breakfast at a picturesque restaurant.

The lady working at the kitchen, Thelma Gonzales (above middle), had once lost everything she owned when Hurricane Stan ripped through her home.Women in Action (MeA) lent her money to buy her own property – in her own words, she never would have been a land-owner without this loan from MeA.

We’ll continue to share Farrah’s experience visiting our Central American partners in a series of post on our website.
