SANDRA LETICIA GABRIEL Y GABRIEL, HANDICRAFT PROGRAM
Now I motivate other artisans
Sandra Leticia Gabriel y Gabriel had always wondered how she could learn and improve the production of typical outfits to market them. At the age of 27, she is married, has 4 sons and has continued her craft work, dedicating herself to making typical cloth on a foot loom. Her desire to have education led her to participate in the courses that FUNDAP offers to the “Dulce Hogar” group of the Taltimiche Village, a training program where she also learned how to dye, tie, and marry jaspes, besides this, weave cuts with the application of jaspes for later commercialization.
“Now she is the one who motivates
other women artisans“
Sandra Leticia would never have imagined that she could have the opportunity to cultivate this art, but now she is the one who motivates other women artisans to train and acquire new knowledge, techniques and skills to improve and diversify production. Undoubtedly, one of the most valuable lessons that she has learned from her learning is that opportunities exist, but you have to take advantage of them to work and improve the conditions of families. She is personally very grateful to the foundation, but she has also realized that it is an important way for other people to acquire the necessary skills that open doors to the job market.
