Valentin Pedro's story
Don Valentín Gutiérrez is the owner of a small workshop with 3 looms. He makes traditional sashes for women, and since the number of his customers has grown, he is requesting a loan so that he can meet this demand. He has 6 years of experience making these types of handicrafts. He lives with his wife and his son. He wishes to provide a better quality of life for them and a better education for his son. His home is found in Choatzam in the Juchanep canton of Totonicapán.
