Xesaclac 2 Group's story

Arcadia A. B. manages this group of women from the Xesaclac parrish in the Jutacaj rural community, Xequemeya village, Momostenango. Arcadia sells firewood. She has two daughters and three sons, and they help her. She buys from merchants. She sells at a spot in the center of the Momostenango municipality in the Totonicapán department.

She has a second economic activity, which is raising domestic animals like pigs, sheep, chickens, and cows. Her husband helps her. He sells clothes in the market in the San Pedro Sacatepequez municipality in the San Marcos department.

The people in the group need to expand their animal production and their firewood sales. That is why they came to the ASDIR Asociación’s offices in Pologuá to be able to finance their economic activities. That way they will be able to improve their living conditions and those of their families. This is the second loan they have requested.

In this group: Arcadia , Juana , Estela , Silvia Matea , Vicenta
