Maria Del Carmen
View original language description ↓
MARIA DEL CARMEN is single, she is 20 years old and an artisan. She embroiders napkins, tablecloths, shawls, and blouses, and she sells them in the handicrafts market in San Cristóbal de las Casas with the vendors who have their locations established there. She is part of the solidarity group called Libélula 1, along with Ms. Rosa Pérez Gómez (artisan) and Ms. Rosa Vázquez Montejo (artisan). All of them will invest their loan in the purchase of thread in bulk, because in that way they save the cost of merchandise, time, and transport.
