María
View original language description ↓

Maria spends each day attending to her customers in her small shop and, in the company of her husband, she does farm work early in the morning on weekends. These efforts together provide for the wellbeing of her children, especially for her youngest who is only 12 years old and suffers from a tumor in her eye and had to be taken to the city (Lima) for treatment. She was accompanied by her older sister who is caring for her. In order to quickly improve their quality of life, they wish to expand their store and fill it with merchandise in order to meet the needs of their community and obtain the amount of money necessary for their daughter’s treatment, which she desperately needs at this critical moment in her life. Remember that people like Maria hope that you don’t forget them.
