NUESTROS SUEÑOS BAJO UN MISMO CIELO – ESPERA Gathering in Guatemala, March 2013
This March, for the very first time, Mary’s Pence gathered representatives from ESPERA groups across Central America, Mexico and Haiti. Participants gathered in Guatemala, and included the coordinators of local funds from 6 countries, women who participate in the lending pools, and representatives of Mary’s Pence board and staff.
The theme was “Our Dreams Under the Same Sky” and the purpose was to share experiences of working with ESPERA, commit to goals for ESPERA for local programs, and identify ways to collaborate across this network of amazing women.
