Grupo Los Paisanos Group's story

The "Los Paisanos" (The Compatriots) group is from the Chimente San Jose community which is 42 kilometers from the city of Totonicapan. This is a very poor community that has been abandoned by the different governments. The group sells clothing in the municipal markets of Patzite and Santa Cruz del Quiche. They state that they have always wanted financing because they are very poor people with no access to banks. They need the financing to improve their quality of life and that of their children. With the funds they intend to stock up on merchandise so that they can meet the requests of their customers.

In this group: Santos Rufina, Angelica Maria Manuel, Ricardo , Apolonio, Santos Natalia, Rosa Antonia, Pedro
