María Lucía lives with her husband Ezequiel and their children, José Luis, Ezequiel, Joselyn, Debbie, Selina, Jazmin, Eber and 7 more relatives in a small community in Chimaltenango. While Ezequiel works in agriculture, María takes care of their big family.
Before partnering with Habitat Guatemala to receive her smokeless stove, María used to cook on an old stove. The stove was 10 years old and was in bad shape, it had cracks, causing the smoke to stay inside the house.
María Lucia explains how she feels with the new stove: “I feel content with it, no more smoke inside my eyes now! She continues, “it is big and gives me enough space to cook all my meals at the same time.”
She finishes by sharing a message to the volunteers: “May God bless you all, thank you for your support.”
