Paula Calabay has been able to support herself with loans provided by FINCA for 35 years. Like many women in the highlands of Guatemala, weaving represents much more than just a job. For Paula it represents both artistic beauty and a means to improve the livelihood of her daughters. With FINCA loan she was able to acquire she was able to expand her business and support her family.
Paula is a proud mother and a FINCA client, that has always brought great enthusiasm to her work. Weaving has always been part of her family’s tradition. She learned from her grandmother and mother and now her daughters are learning to weave themselves. Paula expects to use credit she receives from FINCA to expand her business.
