Irene Valencia Parisaca

Age: 50 years old

Civil status: Widow, three children

Location: District of Huancané

Organization/Association: Artisan Women’s Association “María Auxiliadora”.

Irene has many reasons to thank her knitting.  It gave her a stable source of work that has allowed her to make a living on her own and send three children to university.  Her wonderful hands are so capable that they have created many different products, from elegant shawls to tiny puppets that are sold internationally thanks to Movimiento Manuela Ramos.

What do you do with the money you earn?

The money we earn is used to help our children and to invest.  Some of us have debts and our income allows us to repay them.

What do you dream of doing?

In my organisation, we dream of being strong entrepreneurial business women that motivate other women.  Our dream is to export directly and to travel.

Irene-Valencia
