Don Julian Antonio P. P. is a native of the town ChiP. Hoy. He is a weaver who learned the art during the time of war in Guatemala when Guatamalan weaving was very well-known internationally. He used to sell his products in Chichicastenango and Panajachel. Now the demand for his products has decreased in this area. But because of the quality of work that he does, he has some customers who buy his products. He needs a credit because he has an order to fill, since it is very difficult to find a weaver with his skills.
