She and her husband both work in the same trade and also have two employees in the same activity. Maria has spent eight years making skirts in her home, which is located in the hamlet of Zaculeu in the Vásquez neighbourhood of the department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. Now, the demand from her customers has increased, but because of the current economic conditions they aren't able at present to increase their capital.
