Dora Alicia Pineda

In the small village of Las Vueltas, between valleys and mountains in the North of El Salvador, an incipient movement of women entrepreneurs supported by a joint program of the SDG Fund makes a differential change in the fight against child malnutrition and the development of family livelihoods. "We are ten women who work to supplement the diet of families and to combat children malnutrition,” explains Dora Alicia Pineda, farmer and ‘family demonstrator’. She has become a reference on how to effectively administrate resources to grow their businesses, like the micro-entrepreneurship of birds he runs. "I think the work with the new chicken incubator is excellent because it benefits all the women who are working in this group." Pineda's leadership has also led her to participate actively in decision-making bodies in her municipality, such as the Municipal Committee for Food and Nutritional Security, school purchasing and feeding committee, demonstration family, women's association and committee of the Tamulasco River. In a short time, Dora Alicia Pineda has become an example of female business success in Las Vueltas.
