Dúo Getzemani Group's story

One of the two members of the Getzemani group is 58-year old María Felipa, a native of the municipality of San Juan Sacatepéquez. She has a 16-year old daughter. For more than 25 years Sra. Felipa has sold clothing and woven napkins, and made the traditional dress typical of the area. Through these activities she has managed to maintain her small house.

This loan will allow her to buy the fabric and weaving supplies she needs to make traditional clothing to sell.

In this group: Rosa Felipa, Maria Felipa
