Marta is super special and started sewing with One Common Thread after learning from a friend. Marta is the mother of three, two teenage boys and one 8 year old girl. Marta has been working hard to improve her living conditions and we have already had the chance to help her with a new roof and cement floors. Marta even saved enough money to buy a refrigerator and besides sewing she also sells frozen chocolate bananas from her home.
Marta would really love to have a plastic dresser to organize her clothing and make her living space better. Right now she uses black trash bags like many of our Makers to store her clothing from the elements of her little shack. A dresser is about $60 and so we know with three donations of $20 we will be able to get her dresser in no time!!
