Expectations of future participants were shared by Petrona Tiul who spoke on behalf of the community: "I am Petrona Tiul, originally from Colonia Santiaguito, de El Estor, Izabal. It has been 12 years since my husband died and I have raised my children and moved on, I have 7 kids. I am not educated but I know, I can, and I want, to encourage Kekchi Maya women to keep moving forward and continue participating, because it's worth it and we have the right to do it."
