Carmelita is 41 (she is third in the picture from left to right, wearing a light blue blouse) she lives in the San Pedro La Laguna municipality in the department of Sololá. She has 3 children, they are in elementary school and are all underage.
She sells food typical of the region since the place where she lives is a tourist destination and is visited by a lot of local as well as international people. With the income she earns she supports and helps her husband with the family expenses.
She is applying for a loan to invest in the purchase of kitchen utensils and materials for food production. She realized that organizing themselves as a group really facilitates things.
With her earnings, Carmelita aims to help her children to study and prepare themselves academically and also improve the quality of life.
