Rosa Candelaria's story

Señora Rosa Candelaria T. C. is thirty-five years of age, married, and currently lives in Paraje Xoljuj at the end of Zone 3, Totonicapán. For years she has worked in handiworks, making blouses embroidered by hand. This work was a result of her trying to help her husband to bring in income for the family since most of the people in our department are indigenous and the most useful clothing for women are blouses which is why she makes them. This is why she came to the Asdir offices to ask for a loan to take advantage of the Christmas season to be able to make more products and to have better earnings since in those days the demand for this work increases, allowing her to grow and improve her standard of living.
