Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Yanori's determination to provide for herself and her son is truly admirable. At 24 years-old, she recognizes the importance of sewing quilts as a means to generate income, especially considering the financial challenges she faces. While the father of her son may not consistently contribute financially, Yanori takes it upon herself to ensure that both she and her son have their basic needs met.
Her son, Alex, attends 2nd grade and returning to in-person school is a positive development in their lives. Yanori understands the value of education for her child's future, and she works even harder to provide for him and create a better life.
Thanks to the income she earns from sewing quilts, Yanori has been able to make significant improvements to her living situation. Recently re-roofing her home not only offers better protection from the elements but also provides a sense of stability and security. Additionally, acquiring a new refrigerator enhances her ability to store food and meet her family's nutritional needs.
Yanori's story showcases the resilience and resourcefulness of individuals facing financial hardships. Her commitment to providing for her son and making positive changes in their lives is truly inspiring. Through her hard work and determination, she is creating a better future for herself and her family.
