Vicenta

(Vicenta on left)

Vicenta was born in the outskirts of Cusco, Peru, in a town called Espinar. She had a rough start to life, having lost her mother at childbirth. She has felt alone her entire life as her father died when she was 8 years old. After her father's passing, she went to live with her uncle, but according to her, he never loved her. 

Her break in life came from her Godmother who taught her how to sew and knit, and that is how she has supported herself through the years. She now lives on her own in Cusco, and is eager to work on special commissions. When Kelly asked her if she could make her some hats, she had them ready in two days saying that opportunities like that don't present themselves often and she wanted to make sure she took it. 

Vicenta is a kind, quiet, gentle woman. She is hungry for work, and grateful for any job given to her.
