Andrea CarolinaBlogAndrea Carolina is a 5 year old Pre-K student at the center this year. She lives with her mom and has two brothers and sisters. 

Sara's day begins when most of us are still asleep - at 4am, when she heads to San Salvador's central market where she purchases fruits and vegetables. Sara is a first year participant in our Women's Economic Empowerment Project. With enough capital to buy a small quantity of produce, Sara normally just buys enough to last her through the day.
