Flor De Xeabaj Group's story

Tomasa is married and is 31 years old. She did not have the opportunity to attend school. She has 8 children, 2 of which are in school. She makes a living making blouses that are typical of the region. She started this business by learning it from her mother, and now has 3 years of experience.

The other group members work in trade and crafts.
