Maria Luisa
Doña Maria Luisa, at 63 years of age, is still working as a weaver engaged in the production of traditional women’s sashes. She works in a workshop of five looms and employees engaged in the same activity. She has been weaving sashes for 18 years. She lives close to her children in her residence which is in Paraje Chichaclan, Cantón Poxlajuj, in the Department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. Nowadays, the demand of her customers has grown but the economic circumstances have not been sufficient for her to accumulate her working capital. For that reason, she approached Asociación ASDIR to request a loan with the intention of buying raw materials, and thus increase her sales.
