View original language description ↓
About 45 minutes from the city of Juliaca is the town of Pukara, where we can find Flora creating her beautiful and distinctive clay and plaster miniatures. This fine work has brought her years of happiness and satisfaction, as it has allowed her to provide better schooling to her two children. She has given everything to provide from them since she was widowed more than 19 years ago. Now that she is able to enjoy seeing her children working as successful professionals, she would like to create even more of her beautiful ceramic pieces so that she can export them and show the whole world the fine art which she creates with such patience and dedication. In order to realize her dreams, she is requesting a loan, which she will use to purchase raw materials, clay, and paint, so that she can can give a fine finish to each of her pieces. Lets help this wonderful mother to make her dreams a reality.
