Honduras – Day 5 from Angela

Angela in the sweet shop!

We continue to follow Angela Mason’s travels in Honduras with the women from the WOV Columbia-Willamette chapter. Here she shares about Day 5.

We are still in the state of Paradise here in Honduras, both literally and figuratively. The actual state is named Paradise, but it is fitting as our visit has been truly delightful. Today we visited “Fraternity Sweets” a sweet shop that is another microenterprise success story. We watched them make dulce de leche candy covered with coconut! This trip has been full of sweets – both candy and also sweet stories of successful businesses!

We then visited the San Matias ADP and were warmly greeted by Maritza, the ADP manager. This ADP is ready to close within the next 4 years since the programs there have been effective. We participated in a youth-organized rally and AIDS walk in honor of World AIDS Day in the small town of San Matias – all the town came out to participate and join in the rally!
