Mujeres Sembradoras Group's story

Candelaria Pú I. has three children, two girls and a boy. The eldest is eight and the youngest is one. She lives 25 kilometers from the city of Momostenango. Currently, she is dedicated to working in her grocery store and an electric corn mill. With the need arising to provide better living conditions to her family, she needs a loan to increase the capital of the shop since she can then increase the products she can sell and, with time, obtain better income. For this, she organized with a group of people in the community who all have moral principles and they turned to the ASDIR association to solicit a loan for each one of them. The rest of the group is dedicated to raising domestic animals and others to farming such as sowing tomatoes, Chinese snow peas, cauliflower, coffee, among other products.
