Mrs. Josefina has always been a hard worker, a few years ago an unfortunate and tragic accident occurred and she lost her husband in a transportation accident. This cause her much pain because her three lovely daughters were very small. Since then they have given her enough strength for her to obtain various occupations and convert herself into both mother and father for her children, always looking out for their well-being, security and education. Presently, this adorable mother lives in a family home where she works from very early in the morning producing ducts/gutters for roofs of homes. This occupation of manual labor that she realizes with her skills and working hands enables her to provide an education for her lovely daughters. Additionally, she sells candy, American clothes and vegetables, among others. Her wish is to expand the production of ducts/gutters and it is for this reason that she is soliciting your help in order to acquire the necessary materials to realize this goal. Josefina and her lovely daughters are appreciative of your hear and your kind collaboration.
