Pocohilense Group's story

Marta, 40, is married and was unable to get an education. She has five children, two of which are in school. She weaves traditional garments (huipiles) and started her business with the help of her husband. She has been in business for five years. Her husband is a wage earner.

She has organized a group to request a loan to buy yarn to increase production of woven items and improve income. She hopes to have two workers in the future to increase production. The other members of the group also weave typical garments and export their production.
