Chutinamit is a small sector in the municipality of San Andres Semetabaj, Solola. The history of this rural community could be described as difficult with many intricate moments, but with a high sense of social claim, empowerment, and unity that made possible that all 22 families could finally live in a decent and secure home. 

After Hurricane Agatha in 2010, the community lost their houses, belongings, and crops because of being located on the banks of a river in Xolaja, Chichicastenango. Living almost for five years in relief canvas shelters while they struggled with slow governmental reaction, corruption, unkept promises, and community disintegration, they deiced to solve the problem by they own means. With an acquired land obtained through a bank credit, and new strategic alliances from Constru Casa, Mil Milagros NGO, and Hermanas Eucaristicas, the community could solve not only its housing problem, but also they were able to extent their labor to community development, nutrition, and education.
