Arminda Amparo's story

Arminda is someone who lost her parents at a young age. She has been an orphan since she was 10 years old, when her parents died in an accident. She was raised by the people for whom her mother worked as a maid. This is how she grew up, and she had to experience many difficulties throughout her childhood and adolescence. Sometimes, she had to arrange to study at night, because they did not want her to study.

After years, she found an aunt who has given her a place to live. Arminda studied to be a seamstress, and now she creates sportswear to get by. Her aunt now is elderly, and cannot help out. For that reason, she has needed to find more work.

She is an enterprising woman that wants to move forward in life, especially because of how much she suffered as a child. She never had the support of her parents, because, as previously mentioned, they had passed away.

She took the initiative to overcome her difficulties alone, and that is why she built her sewing workshop. Now, she needs to purchase raw materials for her sewing work, so that she can improve her standard of living with great sacrifice and hard work.
