Plan for Returned Migrants – Sandra’s Story
Chargé d’Affaires Brendan O’Brien visited Guazapa to learn about Sandra’s success story; she lives in that municipality with her children and owns La Pupusería and Cocina de “Mama Noy”. This venture, with which he provides for his family, was born after much effort and support thanks to USAID El Salvador and IOM El Salvador.
Sandra is part of the plan for returned migrants in which she received the seed capital that allowed her to reintegrate into her community and support her family. This program has supported more than 9,000 people to reintegrate into their place of residence and find opportunities for growth.
“I have eaten many pupusas in El Salvador, but the ones I shared today with Sandra Flores and her family were special. In addition to being delicious, they left me the good taste of seeing this Salvadoran rebuild her life in her country, thanks to our cooperation,” said Chargé d’Affaires O’Brien.
