Your raffle entry directly increases the amount of seed money for our entrepreneurs to apply for. These are some of the amazing prizes you could win, all made with love by Salvadoran small businesses.

Raquel Arana is a long-time supporter and mentor of our entrepreneurs and training project. She has donated beautiful pieces from her “Raquel Arana Home” line that will give more life and color to your spaces.

Get a taste of El Salvador. Xocolatisimo works with high-quality cacao beans cultivated in the country to make the most delicate and tasty chocolate bars, innovative flavors, truffles, cookies, and desserts. Their chocolate and desserts have won multiple awards over the years.

A statement piece. There’s nothing more versatile than this “cesta” in El Salvador! It will last for years to come. You’ll find one in most households because, as usual, the abuelitas know what’s best!
