More Weaving loans in Guatemala
I found two more Kiva loans to weavers in Guatemala, though one of the loans is to help the weaver Maria Tipaz Ramirez with her grocery store business.
Maria Cedillo Ceto is also a beautiful weaver. She never learned to read or write, speaks just a little bit of Spanish, and signs her name with a thumbprint impression. Her native language is Ixil. Maria's adobe home has a dirt floor and has electricity and water but the water must be boiled before consuming.
