Juana Antonia
Doña Juana C. is 43 years old. She is married and lives with her husband and 2 children. Both she and her husband are tailors and make traditional women's clothing. They have three looms and 2 employees working for their business. They have been making traditional garments for 18 years from their home in the ChiP. Village, in the Totonicapá district in Guatemala.


Although customer demand has increased, the current economic situation makes it difficult for them to increase their capital. For this reason, Juana has turned to the Asociación ASDIR to request a loan to purchase raw materials so that she and her husband can increase their weekly sales. With this loan, they hope to help their children succeed and improve their quality of life.
