Duo Esther Group's story

Duo Esther: This group is composed of two women who are dedicated to making and selling guipiles, a colorful traditional Mayan style of tunic. Doña Rosa A., who is the leader of the group, is 34 years of age. She has 4 children and is married. She has been dedicated to the sale of traditional clothing in the market of her community for several years. They tell us that they need a loan to buy raw materials, since at this time their clients place various orders. They hope that Fape can give them the support that they need to grow their sales. Their dream is to have their own sales location and to be able to give their children an education so that in the future they can be professionals.

In this group: Azucena , Rosa
