Marley is a young woman who is 20 years of age. She lives in the District of Parcona, which is known for its warm climate and the generosity of its people. Even though she comes from a humble background, Marleny has the desire to make progress despite the adversity she has faced. She is employed as a farm worker at an estate in her city. Marleny works approximately nine hours a day and her work enables her to support her family and pay for the household expenses. In addition, she provides for her nephews who also live at her house.

Marleny continues to strive forward each day so that she can fulfill her greatest wish of providing a good education for her nephews, which would enable them to study for a university degree.
