Paraje Centro Group's story

Santos Elías P. has 8 children. She is a hard working person and has gotten ahead raising pigs. She is an enthusiastic person despite her meager schooling. Raising animals has allowed her to get ahead and help her husband meet household expenses. She sells her animals in the Momostenango municipality in Totonicapán.
