A loan of $300 helped artesan: Increase capital.


Teresa's story

Teresa V. is 56 years old and is married. She is by trade a weaver "making typical skirts for women". She has a workshop with two looms and lives together with her children. She and her husband both work in the same trade and have two employees working in the same activity. She has 12 years experience making skirts in her home, which is located in Chotacaj hamlet, in the V. neighbourhood of the department of Totonicapán , Guatemala. Currently the demand from her customers is growing, but because of the current economic climate she is not able to increase her capital. It's for this reason that Teresa approached the ASDIR Association in order to ask for a loan, with the intention of purchasing primary materials and in this way be able to increase her sales.
