Laura is a lively single mother of two children and an eight-month old baby.
She lives in a single room home her father built on their back yard. Laura works in the packinghouse at Arandeira and does odd jobs in the off season. She also attends classes at a local foundation that supports child nutrition and provides education for young mothers.
Her one room home does not have a restroom nor running water, so they need to go to the main house to use the facilities, even if its cold or raining outside.
Laura’s dream is to be able to build a bathroom and have indoor plumbing, so her children don’t need to go across the yard to use the facilities.
