Dúo Caminando Con Cristo Group's story

This is the "Duo Caminando con Cristo" group.

Silvia is from the village of Xenimajuyu in Tecpan municipality. She is 30 years old and cares for three minor children. She works making handwoven items.

She has been a weaver for some years because it is the means she has to help her family get ahead in life. She is already known in the market for her weaving.

Her husband works as a day laborer, and thanks to his support, Silvia continues working to improve her children's quality of life.

Her dream is to expand her business and have sufficient raw material so that she can earn more. This will enable her to send her children to a better school so that they can have a better future. She is applying for the loan in order to buy raw material for her weaving.
