Sharon's story

Sharon is 30 years old and lives in the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. She is the mother of two children and studies tourism at the University. Her greatest dream is to share her customs and culture through art. Her work consists of creating handmade crafts with themes from her own region. She then advertises them online as well as selling them to national and international tourists that often visit the zone where she lives. She is thankful for the opportunity that makes her project possible and for the loan for communal assistance.
