Mujeres Luchadoras De San Jose El Idolo Group's story

This group of people lives in the San Francisco neighborhood of San José El Ídolo Suchitepéquez. They are requesting funds from Asociación ASDIR because they are merchants in the downtown area of said municipality and adjoining areas. They sell: clothing, fruit, tortillas, spare parts; some raise pigs. They sell their products moving from place to place and need funds to be able to continue their work.

It has been noted that they wish to improve because they currently live in a very low socio-economic stratum and need capital through with they can increase sales and reach important goals such as improving the education and health of their children thereby contributing since they currently have only their husbands’ earnings and these are insufficient to meet household needs.

For this reason they need the loan in order to improve their living conditions.

There are two persons that appear in the photo who did not qualify for a loan according to Asociación ASDIR’s qualifying criteria.

In this group: Yesenia Magali, Melchora, Juana, Catalina, Maria Leona, Marta Luisa
