Epifania Rosa
View original language description ↓
Ever since she was very small, Epifanía has taken interest and initiative in learning the beautiful work of artisanship. After she started her family with Pedro, her faithful partner, she decided to wholly devote herself to this fine art, always dreaming of exporting her goods abroad. Little by little, they managed to become one of the best ceramicist families in their home city of Pukará. But as fate would have it, with tranquility and family togetherness reigning in the home, Pedro lost his life, causing terrible pain and emptiness in Epifanía’s family. Ever since then, this brave mother has taken sole charge of her two adolescent children. With the support of her older son, Oscar, she keeps working diligently to solidify her dreams of exportation, conquering the world market with her beautiful and valued works. To make her dreams a reality, Epifanía is requesting a loan that she promises to repay in eight months. In your hands is the ability to bring her the support she needs to make her dreams come true.
