Francisca
View original language description ↓
Francisca is a humble and self-assured woman. For as long as she can remember, she has seen the necessity of working and earning her own income. Currently, with diligence and dedication, she is engaged in two activities, the weaving of gorgeous caps and scarves that she sells in the Sunday market in Juliaca and the selling of American-style clothing and stuffed animals. With these two business she is managing to get ahead and provide an education for her little daughter, Cristina, for whom she has the dream of some day building a house in order to live in the security and warmth of her own home.

Translated from Spanish by Donald Allen, Kiva Volunteer.
