Catarina Manuela's story

Doña Catarina Manuela García Y. is 46 years old and married. She lives with her husband and four children in a place known as Tzanjuyup Village, which is part of the Chipuac neighborhood in the City and Department of Totonicapán, Guatemala.

Catarina makes traditional skirts as well as dyed and woven fabrics that are in great demand among her customers. The pressing need to produce more goods is the reason why she came to the offices of Asociación ASDIR to request a loan. With the funding, Catarina will purchase the raw materials needed to keep up with the demand of her customers and improve her work. This will help her generate more income to cover her monthly expenses.
