Rafael Santos
Rafael Santos B. B., 54, is a married craftsperson; he lives with his wife and 10 children. He and his wife, with the help of two employees, make typical articles of clothing. He has been in this line of work for 30 years. His shop is located in his home, which is in Paraje Chipar, Juchanep Cantón, Totonicapán department, Guatemala.

Demand for his products has increased lately but his economic situation does not permit him to increase production. For this reason, he has called upon Asociación ASDIR to request funds to buy raw materials so that sales can increase thereby allowing him to move his children ahead in life and providing better living conditions.
