Canquixaja Group's story

This group of women from Canquixaja settlement, Xequemeya village, Momostenango municipality, Totonicapán department, knows each other very well; they have worked together for 5 years in a variety of activities within the community. For example: school committees at their children’s schools and church activities.

These five people in particular raise pigs, sheep and chickens; one grows basic grains.

Each of their homes was visited and it was confirmed that they have much experience in their work so they are considered to be responsible and hard-working people; despite not having sufficient resources, they are enterprising.

They need to increase their working capital so they called upon Asociación ASDIR’s office in Pologuá to seek financing for their commercial activities thereby improving their own and their families’ living conditions.

In this group: Tomasa , Felipa , Fabiana , Elida , Rosa
