Vitrina Solidaria is hosting a “Pop-Up Sale Mom’s Edition” to support local entrepreneurs and provide practical business experience to program participants. On this year’s Mother’s Day, the product and service sales event will feature 24 businesswomen and one businessman, many of whom are graduates or receive training from the El Yunque Emprende acceleration program. Vitrina Solidaria helps accelerate microenterprises and social ventures while promoting sustainable development and a solidary economy. The nonprofit organization showcases artisanal production and provides equal opportunity for entrepreneurs through training, mentoring, marketing and sales activities.

The organization holds the “Pop-Up Sale Mom’s Edition” every year with the support of the Banco Popular Foundation with the objective of the event also serving as practice and a showcase for the products and services of new entrepreneurs who emerge from its business acceleration programs.

“‘Pop-Up Sale Mom’s Edition’ is an extraordinary opportunity to showcase and sell products from over 25 microenterprises, 96 percent of which are women-led and whose philosophy is based on sustainable development and a solidary economy,” said the executive director of Vitrina Solidaria, Raquel Skerrett-Escalera.

The event will take place on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Banco Popular Foundation in Hato Rey, and will feature a variety of accessories, jewelry, beauty products, textiles, art, photography, stickers, different types of food and beverages, and natural products.
