This week we painted the new Pupusería. Actually it was Edith´s sister and niece who did the work.
There are many more improvements to be made before we delve into food sales. But each step forward is a step toward self-sustainabilty. Necessary steps are haltingly made due to financial constraints, such as money for a fogon on which to cook food, outdoor lighting for evening sales, tables and chairs, etc. The construction of our new building is mired in a newly discovered sewage problem that may require extensive repairs before actual construction can begin, setting the new Hogar San José´s completion date back even more than anticipated.
