Juan Elíaz Beato
Don Juan is a very optimistic and hard working person. He works making handcrafted artwork after learning this vocation from his father, who did the same type of work, more then 28 years ago. Don Juan is currently teaching his children to make handcrafted items. As a result, his business has not only allowed him to cover his family´s expenses, but also has been a way for the family to stay together.

Don Juan sells his products in some restaurants in the tourist area of Cancún and comments that he has had a lot of demand for his handcrafted articles but does not have the capital to invest so that he could generate more income. He needs $925 USD to buy raw materials. You can help Don Juan and his children who depend on his business. They appreciate your kindness and generosity.
