Maria Patricia's story

Mrs. María is thirty-seven years old and lives in the East Ring Road area. She came from Potosí when she was a child and lives together with her aunts and uncles which she has done for many years. She works as a secretary in a water systems company and at the same time she makes handicrafts together with a group of local women.

María Teresa was unable to finish her studies in business administration, because she did not have someone to support her and because she had to work. María is a single mother, with a five-year-old daughter. She tries to spend as much time as possible with her and give her all the attention that she did not have as a child, because of several reasons. However, María was able to get ahead in life.

She needs to buy material for her embroidery art.
