Dúo El Calvario Comalapense Group's story

Doña Concha is one of the members of the Duo El Calvario group. She is a native of the town of San Juan Comalapa in the department of Chimaltenango. She is married and all of her children are now adults who help her produce her goods.

Doña Concha is 70 years old and she is a weaver who makes different products. She weaves guipiles (traditional blouses) and napkins. She makes her sales in the village because that is where she gets her orders for goods. Now, however, she needs a loan in order to expand her business because there is such a high demand. She will also use part of the loan to purchase the basic materials she uses to make her traditional woven goods.

In this group: Concha , Florentina
