Maria Benigna's story

María Y. is 34 years old and is married. She is by trade a weaver, "making typical skirts for women". She has a workshop with three looms and lives together with her suns. She and her husband both work in the same trade and also have two employees in the same activity. Maria has spent eight years making skirts in her home, which is located in the hamlet of Zaculeu in the Vásquez neighbourhood of the department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. Now, the demand from her customers has increased, but because of the current economic conditions they aren't able at present to increase their capital. It's for this reason that she approached ASDIR association in order to ask for a loan, with the intention of buying primary materials and so be able to increase her sales.
