Zacualpa is a small but busy village in a mountain valley. The village is inhabited by both Quiché Indians and Ladinos (those with mixed European ancestry). The prevalent language is Spanish. Families in this village live in one or two room homes generally constructed of either wood or adobe. Although many of the people are farmers, the village contains several small specialized stores, a body repair shop for buses, mechanics, plumbers and many other small-town tradesmen. It also has a large open-air market which serves much of the area.
Hello, my name is Wilson Estuardo Tzoc Lopez. I was born on August 17, 2012. I am a healthy child, and I walk about 10 minutes to get to the feeding program. I have only one sister. My father’s name is Luis and he works as a farmer and a day laborer. My mother’s name is Julia and she is a housewife. We live in the house with my grandparents and we split the expenses. The house is made of cement block with a cement floor. The roof is constructed in such a way that an additional level could be added later on. The house has two rooms with a separate kitchen. We have water and electricity. My family does not travel to the coast to work as many families do. We have one cat. I am not in school yet, so I spend my time playing tag. My favorite color is blue and my favorite animal is the cat. The foods that I like best are mandarins and grilled chicken. My family attends Prince of Peace Church.
With much love and many blessings,
Wilson Estuardo Tzoc Lopez
