Lucia Antonia's story

Ms. Lucia P. is a very humble person from a far-off community in the department of Totonicapan. Her main business activity is embroidery by sewing machine. She has been in this business ever since she was 12 years old. Even today, she still works in this craft, which she inherited from her beloved mother. She states that her neighbors take her their garments so that she can make matching aprons, decorate the pieces, and make blouses. She now needs a loan in order to purchase supplies because she has a large order from a market in the community of Totonicapan.
