This year our customary Christmas campaign and end of the year closing was different due to the health situation that the whole world is going through, we share with you through this audiovisual piece how this important activity was developed this year.
With a bakery workshop, the start-up of the production units of the FMCCV continues. The seed, as the bakery is called, is an association of female heads of households from the Lipaya neighbourhood, who with the project have found another tool to support their families and mitigate the ravages of the covid. The energies and dedication of this group of women has been present during the development of the workshops. Long live entrepreneurship.
Through the Cultivarte Project, which has been developing in the community of Lipaya and Soledad, the dream of producing a small amount of vegetables at home is being brought to reality in order to reduce the cost of the family food, increase the consumption of healthy foods and unite families in this purpose. Creating the culture of green production in the gardens and terraces of the beneficiary families has been a purpose that we aspire to be perpetuated over time for the direct benefits to our families.
