María Victoria Duran

I am a proud mother of 11 kids. I work with Lula Mena and I love to work on her designs.

I am grateful because through our work, I am getting help for my family, who is my big Blessing in Life. Without my family I would be nothing, they are my happiness.

Within our group, I make necklaces and bracelets with local seeds that we combine with other materials. We have a great work dynamic with the other women artisans: we share, work and enjoy together.

Finding Lula has really made us grow. I always describe her as an Angel, a shinning star that brightens the path we are walking on and encourages us to reach further for our dreams. Thanks to her we are doing it!
