Lidia Esther's story

Lidia Esther is from the La Peña region, where she lives with her family. Her father supports her in her work, and rather than having a job, she cultivates rice on a small scale. This generates income which allows her to support her family. She is extremely interested in becoming a part-owner of a rice thresher, because this will make it possible for her to improve the standard of living of her family, since she is a single mother, which is why she has to work.
