Patzolojche Group's story

Francisca Pelicó C. has five children, and she is a hard-working person. In spite of her extreme poverty, this woman has gotten ahead. She is part of a group of women, Paraje Patzolojche, in the San Antonio neighborhood. This is in the Momostenango municipality in the Totonicapán department.

She is the representative of this group called “Patzolojche”. She and the other three members raise animals like pigs and cows. They also raise poultry like laying hens and chickens and turkeys to fatten. Francisca is also an enthusiastic person in spite of her small amount of schooling.

She is someone who has profited from raising animals. She sells these animals in the Paraje Pologuá in the San Antonio Pasajoc neighborhood in Momostenango.

She needs to increase her working capital in her business of raising animals. This is the second loan that she has asked for from the ASDIR Asociación of Pologuá. She wants the loan for her economic activity in order to be able to improve her living conditions and those of the families of each of the members of this group.

In this group: Francisca, Marina , Juan , Carmen
