Faustino Carmelino's story
Faustino is a 26 year-old man. He is single and has a lovely family of one child. They live in a community of Guiniales Sololá. With a desire to earn an income and help his family get ahead, Faustino has been making typical clothing. He has been doing this for four years. This work is very important to him, because it is where his earnings come from, but now he has decided to buy a plot of land in order to be able to grow a few things and improve his income, although one of Faustino’s difficulties is that he does not have enough money. For this reason he is seeking a loan to be able to purchase his plot of land. His great dream is to be able to purchase three looms to create typical clothing and better satisfy his customers.
