Tatalpa Neighborhood Now Has New Road
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
With great enthusiasm, the people of Tatalpa neighborhood of Anal Abajo village, in Nahuizalco, Sonsonate, inaugurated a new road yesterday that will provide access to 7,768 people in the surrounding areas.
The concrete street construction, 448 linear meters long and about 5.2 meters wide, was part of the Small Infrastructure program (SIA) of the United Status Agency for International Development (USAID). The Salvadoran Socioeconomic Foundation (FUSADES in Spanish), through the Social Strengthening Program (FORTAS in Spanish) implemented the Project.
With a cost of $54,273, shared by USAID, the local government and community the road will also benefit residents from neighboring villages Anal Arriba, Cusamaluco y Mirasalco.
“This is a special and exciting day. We finally have this street that will bring so much good to this zone”, said Nahuizalco mayor, Jorge Alberto Patriz.
Before, the dusty road that led to the aforementioned villages posed many risks and obstacles, especially during the rainy season. With the new concrete road, the residents, mostly small farmers and artisans, can now transport and sell their products more efficiently. Moreover, the 191 students from Tatalpa’s school will benefit from a more route to school, said the school’s principle, Gladis Leticia Doratt.
