La Ceiba Meets Mayor of El Progreso at UMW

La Ceiba had the opportunity to meet with the Mayor of El Progreso, Honduras – Alexander Lopez – and the President of El Progreso’s Rotary Club – Oscar Hawit – at UMW.  Their UMW stop was part of a larger tour of Fredericksburg, during which the Honduran Delegation visited Heritage Gifts and the UMW Bookstore where La Ceiba sells Esfuerzo de Amor products-which are handcrafted by artisans in El Progreso.  At UMW, La Ceiba had the chance to inform the delegation about our first Business Plan Competition and seek their assistance in securing judges and mentors.  The delegation promised their support.
