A loan of $650 helped to expand her business.


Petrona Angelina's story

Doña Petrona Angelina G. T. is from the Canton Chuixchimal community in the department of Totonicapán, three kilometers from the city. Doña Petrona, with her business in the municipal plaza of Totonicapán selling everyday products, supports the growth of her family in education and housing. She has visited the office of ASDIR to ask for a loan to increase her inventory. For the moment she only is selling four days of the week, but with the loan she will sell all week because of the increase in people who need her products and to make the most of this season’s Holy Week carnival and, later, the municipal fair.
