View original language description ↓
Doña Manuela L. T. is 31 years of age, is married and works as a buyer and seller of traditional clothing. Her business is located in the community of Caserio Chilopizab, Aldea Palacal in the Nahualá, Sololá region of Guatemala. She is well known in the community for her participation in all types of activity, for her generosity with the people, and for being a hard worker. She has earned the trust of everyone in the community, and thanks to her daily efforts to make progress she has established her small business. Because of her growing clientele, Manuela does not have the capital to keep up with the demand for her products. She saw the need to go to the ASDIR offices for a loan so that she could continue to meet the needs of her customers. Manuela is known in the community as a responsible person with good principles. Currently she employs one person in her business.
