Octaviana
View original language description ↓
Mrs. Octaviana is very popular, hard working and beloved within the Santa Bárbara market in Juliaca. Ever since she was a child, poverty forced her to leave behind her studies and work to support her humble parents by selling fruit. After many years of working in this field, she is now 66 years old and very proud to see her own kids have professional jobs, families and promising futures. This is all thanks to the great effort of Mrs. Octaviana and her beloved husband.


But now Mrs. Octaviana feels sad and alone. Only a few years ago she suffered the loss of her irreplaceable life companion, her husband. Yet at the same time she was able to confront the hard times and move forward with strength, just as her husband would have wanted her to. The desire of this working woman is to increase the quantity and variety of her merchandise. With this request she turns to you. Your good heart will allow this courageous mother to keep smiling as life goes on.
