“My name is Gloria Chiyal. I learned about handicrafts through classes that were taught at the CECAP, the Friends of Santa Cruz Training Center. I took a sewing class. I’m 24 years-old, married, and I have a daughter and a son. Knowing that my products are being sold in different countries around the world brings joy to me. I find inspiration through the awareness of how my products will help me support my family. I really want for my community to improve and help create more opportunities for everyone. My craftsmanship helps my town because it attracts tourists, who purchase our products and look forward to meeting us”.
