My house was destroyed in the earthquake. I was making shoes before it happened. I have been married for 25 years, and we have 3 daughters. There are 8 people living in the apartment I now rent. I am happy to say all of my girls have gone to school. I don't make as much money in the shop as I did was I was selling my own shoes, but I am here happily. (view small | med | large | orig)

After the earthquake I was unable to save anything. I lost it all. I sleep in a tent. My husband has no job and I have two little brothers and a niece to take care of. I have 4 children as well. This job is changing my life. The tires in the street were just trash. (view small | med | large | orig)
