The manual says:

   After installing fonts you may have to refresh the font cache to use
them in applications.  The same applies when applications installed via
Guix do not seem to find fonts.  To force rebuilding of the font cache
run ‘fc-cache -f’.  The ‘fc-cache’ command is provided by the
‘fontconfig’ package.

If I remember correctly, this helped me when I had encountered this issue.
