Las Tejedoras De Choabaj Group's story

For 12 years the people who live in Chichiscatenango have enjoyed buying the most brightly coloured traditional clothing from the home of Doña Maria. Maria is 38 years old and single. In the photo she is the first from the left.

Her home is full of the noise made by her two children, who are under the age of majority, and with the voices of people who stop by to make purchases from her. They choose her because of the variety of colours they can find and the selection of clothes she offers at all prices and in many different sizes.

She has so many customers shopping at her home that the space at her home is already too small for the business. As a result, she has decided to join a women's group that shares her same drive to succeed in business so that she can search for a spacious storefront from which to sell her outfits. It is for this reason that she is requesting a loan in order to purchase threads and other materials. She will be able to continue following her dreams as a businesswoman and as the breadwinner for her family.

In this group: Rosalina, María, Tomasa, Juana, María Imelda, Micaela
