Juana Jesús's story

Mrs. Juana G. is 32 years old, married and a weaver. "Elaboración de Cortes Típicos para Mujeres" has a workshop with 3 looms. She lives with her husband and both are weavers and they have two employees. They have been making "Cortes" for 7 years at their home located in the Village Chotacaj, of the Aldea Vásquez of the department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. Presently orders from her customers have increased but the economical conditions are not sufficient so she can increase her capital and therefore she approached Asociación ASDIR to request a loan in order to buy material and thus increase sales. She also wants to make her family get ahead and have better living conditions.
