Maria Floritcelda
Maria Floritcelda is 31 years old, married and has four children. She makes a living making huipiles [traditional blouses worn by Maya women]. She also has two people that help her in making the huipiles because she already has orders to deliver.

She started making a living this way because she saw that she needed to help her husband with the household expenses because her husband is a pastor in the evangelical church. As they have four children, they want to let them study so that in the future they will have a better life. The business also gives her the opportunity to help others, to give them a job. This is why she needs another loan, to buy raw materials to continue with her business.

She thanks FAPE and Kiva for the help they offer.
