Wheelchair factory empowers Guatemalans

Jobs and equipment help boost facilities and defy stereotypes for people with disabilities.

Many Guatemalans with physical disabilities often spend much of their lives indoors.

Now, one wheelchair factory is changing that by giving free chairs to thousands of people.

The factory also provides jobs for people with disabilities, who until now have remained on the fringes of Guatemalan society.
