Modesta
View original language description ↓
Despite her advanced age, Modesta continues to be as enterprising and diligent as ever. She enjoys the satisfaction of having provided education and financial stability for her two children, who are about to start college with high hopes and a sense of responsibility. Modesta and her husband Gregorio, a master mason, were able to build their small home. Modesta also raises chickens and cuyes (guinea pigs), and sells them in the town of Juliaca’s weekend market. Modesta also keeps a small stand outside her house porch, where she sells candy. She would like to purchase more candy to stock up her stand. Modesta is hoping for a favorable answer from your caring heart.
