Most likely the problem comes with locale setup for Guix:

Packages installed with Guix do not use locale data provided by the
underlying distro, which is why you have to follow the steps described
in the page above to make sure that they have access to locale data.

Does installed ‘glibc-utf8-locales’ and setting ‘GUIX_LOCPATH’ help?
