“Knowing the craft of weaving changed my life.
Instead of farming land, which is sometimes very hard physically, and due to bad weather, not great for making money.
I can focus on creating.
This allows me to be able to take care of my family, now that I’m the main income earner.
With the work that Trades of Hope has given us, it will help in making my dream come true.
My dream is to keep my grandchildren in school and maybe one day to have a small store of my own where I can sell my designs.”
-Filomena, Del Sol Kimono Artisan in Guatemala
