Grupo Chuisanto Tomas 3 Group's story

Maria is a person with a generous heart. She is the representative for the Chuisanto Tomas 3 group, a group that is working to get ahead with the help of loans.

Maria used her loan to buy thread to make güipiles (traditional Guatemalan blouses), cortes(traditional Guatemalan skirts) and traditional sashes to sell. With God's help this investment gave her a good return. Maria (the first on the left of the photo), who has big aspirations in life, is requesting a new loan in order to continue investing in her clothing business, in this case to buy hand woven cortes, güipiles and traditional sashes. With this new effort she hopes to better meet the needs of her customers.

Her big dream is to build a better house for her family.
