I started working for Mary's Pence in 2011. When I read the mission of the organization, I realized that this might be something for me.
Mary's Pence is a grassroots organization that directs donated resources to small women's projects. Funding decisions are rooted in a Catholic tradition of social justice together with feminist values where all are welcome at the table.
For over 25 years, Mary's Pence has been funding projects and individuals to help empower women throughout the Americas. The ESPERA program is 5 years old and funds lending pools owned and managed by various women's networks in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Haiti.
