Ysabel
View original language description ↓

Ysabel is a humble 37-year-old mother. She left her hometown of Pusi more than 11 years ago along with her husband and children with the hope of finding better living conditions. They currently live in the city of Juliaca, and with the little money they took with them, they have constructed their home where they currently shelter their loving children.

Soon after arriving in this city, she started weaving beautiful skirts, pants and ponchos for women and children, which she sells as a peddler in the San José market of that city. Her hard-working husband, Felix, offers transportation services in his tricycle. As exemplary and responsible dedicated parents, they have been offering an education to their loving children, but especially to Edwar, their youngest, who due to life circumstances was born with a serious illness and is the chief motivator of their efforts and immeasurable desire to progress with their noble work and without losing hope of seeing their children in the path to a bright future.
