Lidia
View original language description ↓
Upon deciding to settle in the city of Juliaca with her family, Lidia has fought to make progress and provide peace and education to her three beloved children. This exemplary mother and her husband, Aurelio, have, little by little, established a small workshop, where they transform metal into beautiful doors and windows for orders. At present, they live in the home of her in-laws, where they were able to set aside a space to establish their workshop, but seeing the discomfort and the little space that they have, they long for the day that they have their own premises. With this goal in mind, this diligent family works with determination. In addition to this work, Lidia wants to enter the handicrafts trade. She is sure that knitting and selling her beautiful pieces of clothing will significantly help with her household expenses.

Desde que decidió radicar en la ciudad de Juliaca junto a su familia Doña Lidia ha luchado por progresar y ofrecerles tranquilidad y educación a sus tres queridos hijos; esta ejemplar madre y su esposo, Aurelio, poco a poco con esfuerzo han implementado un tallercito de transformación de metal en donde fabrican hermosas puertas y ventanas por pedidos.Actualmente viven en el domicilio de sus suegros en donde pudieron adecuar un espacio para instalar su tallercito, pero viendo la incomodidad y el poco espacio con el que cuentan anhelan algún día tener su propio local, con este objetivo en mente ésta diligente familia trabaja perseverantemente y adicionalmente a esta labor Doña Lidia desea incursionar en el oficio de la artesanía, está segura que tejiendo y vendiendo sus hermosas prendas de vestir apoyará considerablemente con los gastos de su hogar.
