Pochol Al Vencimiento Group's story

Maria (she is the second one found on the right side of the photo) is a single woman of 30 years. She lives with her two children in the Department of Suchitepequez. Maria comments that for the past 5 years, she has been working growing and selling maxan [a leaf used for wrapping food]. She carries out the work on land that she has. She chose this activity because it's productive and profitable, through what she does she obtains income that helps her cover the necessities of her family.

Now she has decided to form a group with the purpose of improving the economy of their families through the labor they do. They will utilize the loan for the purchase of agricultural supplies and other materials that will serve for the cultivation of maxan.

The biggest dream of Maria is to generate more revenue so that in the future her family lacks nothing.

In this group: Maria, María, Pascuala, Manuela, Micaela
