Patricia Maribel Garcia Vásquez

Meet Patricia Maribel Garcia Vásquez: 

Patricia is 29 years old and one of the newest members of the weaving cooperative. She has two adorable daughters including a brand new baby girl, Angely. Her father abandoned her family when she was just 3 years old and her mother taught her to weave when she was 10 years old. At age 12, she was already able to complete detailed huipiles, a skill that many don't even know yet. 

Patricia is married to her husband Martin Lopez who is a farmer in the community. She says she is thankful for the weaving cooperative and for people like you who help her family out. She is grateful for the opportunity of a job that can support her family.
