A little of her history

Isabel was born in San Cristóbal, Totonicapán, a place Isabel has always supported. The main public school in San Cristobal is named after her father and the health center after her brother Dionisio. Both institutions receive financial support for their full operation from the foundation that Isabel led.

From a young age, she demonstrated sensitivity and understanding towards the needs of the most destitute. With time, and being a businesswoman and director of very important companies in the country, she became voluntarily involved in community benefit activities.

Her altruism was first carried out personally, and later as a Rotarian. Isabel was the first president of a Rotary social club, which traditionally was exclusively for men. In her later years, she served as president of the Fundación Juan Bautista Gutiérrez, an entity created in honor of her father.

Gutiérrez de Bosch knew how to identify social needs, as well as the appropriate methodologies to bring aid to the less favored. In this way, for a long time, she was able to help institutions that support the handicapped.

She was the founder and president of Fundaniñas, which serves abandoned minors, girls who have committed crimes, and young people with potential, but who do not have the resources to study and get ahead.
