Dúo La Providencia Group's story

Providence Duo

Blanca Gricelda, 33, is part of this group. She’s from the village of Montufar in San Juan Municipality. She’s been a craftswoman for several years. Very early every day they start working as weavers in her house making napkins, traditional skirts and traditional sashes from the San Juan Sacatepéquez region.

In addition, in winter Blanca grows corn and beans which are crops that require large capital investment to buy seeds and chemical and organic fertilizer. Thanks be to God, the crops have made it to harvest season but now she must pay day laborers to harvest the grain that will feed their families for a year.

She’s requesting this loan to buy raw materials to make the traditional textiles and to buy manure for the crops.

In this group: Irma Yolanda, Blanca Gricelda
