Candelaria lives with her mother in law Juanita, in a small community in Sololá.
Before partnering with Habitat Guatemala to receive a sanitary latrine, Candelaria explains the poor conditions in which her old one was; “It was covered with nylon and not functional anymore. We had it for more than 20 years.”
When asked how she feels with her new latrine, Candelaria responds, “The new one is very comfortable and we do not have to worry about getting wet if it is raining. We feel happy with it!”
About her experiences with the volunteers, Candelaria shares that they worked really hard and were really nice. “They came from abroad with a big heart to support us. Thank you all! May God bless you and guide you wherever you are.” – Candelaria Solis.
