Mónica Jacinto cools fruit juices produced by her company, Kask'i. Kask’i’s story began when Mónica joined an association of women from Guatemala’s San Lucas Tolimán region. Together, they started producing fruit juices in one of their homes using a donated blender.

TechnoServe helped Kask'i improve its operations and reach new markets. Since working with us, the company's sales have risen by 60 percent. Today, Mónica is better able to provide her children with food, clothes and an education.
