Chiquimula Business School
Don Guillermo is a shoemaker. When he started the Chiquimula Business School, he told us that his wife was very ill and that had led him to incur many debts, so his business was limited in profits, so the closure of operations due to the pandemic worsened his situation. Thanks to what he learned at the Business School, he managed to maintain his business operations. With the two practical exercises that were carried out, he was able to capitalize on his business again.
Currently, he already has an established store, and several contracts for the mass delivery of his products, which has changed his life and that of his family.
He dreams of growing his business and thus generating employment for other people who, like him, can change his life and that of their families.

Agriculture and Livestock Project
“For me the agriculture project has been a blessing in every way. First I have learned a lot about how to cultivate my garden at home, I thought I already knew things, but here I came to learn new things, they have blessed my life with work, food and something that I recently discovered is that I can sell my harvest. This Sunday a neighbor saw that I already had coriander and asked me if I was selling to her so I already made a small sale of my harvest. Thanks a lot!"
