Florinda Agustina's story

Doña Florinda Agustina is 33 years of age. She is an artisan by trade, engaged in the preparation of women’s aprons She lives with her children, and she and her husband work in a shop with three machines, along with two other employees. She has been making aprons for 10 years in her residence which may be found in Paraje Chichaclan, Cantón Poxlajuj, in the Department of Totonicapán, Guatemala. At present, her customer demand has grown but the economic conditions she has encountered have not allowed her to accumulate her working capital. For that reason, she turned to the Asociación ASDIR to solicit a loan with the intention of buying raw materials, and thus increase her sales. She is also hoping to bring up her children in order to improve their living conditions.
