Jesús Margarita's story

Doña Jesús C. is 39 years old. She is married, by the Tejedora service. She makes traditional clothing for women. She lives with her 5 children. They all do the same work; she has spent 12 years in crafts. Her home is found in the Paraje Paquiaquix, in Cantón Quiaquix, in the department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. At the moment the demand from her clientele is growing, but the economic conditions that she finds herself in are not sufficient for her to be able to augment her capital. For this reason, she approached ASDIR to ask for a loan, with the intention of buying more merchandise and in this manner increasing her weekly sales, hoping also to improve her children’s lives and to have better living conditions.
