Maria Marina Lopez: longtime supporter of Project Milagro.
Ozmán, Marina's 22-year-old son, helps with the laundry.
Selling vegetables, including the frijoles (beans) seen here, is about the extent of Marina's meager income.
After threshing the beans off the plants, Marina collects them into a basket.
The next step is to dry the beans before she attempts to sell them.
Marina walks along a road until it dissolves into underbrush. Then she continues the rest of the 1.5 km to the river to get water.
Marina rests in the shade of the stream's edge as her water jug fills.
The container is full. It's time to head back home.
Carrying her water container up the mountain to her home will be considerably more strenuous.
Marina swears she's not tired at all from taking care of Ozmán or volunteering in Project Milagro. At age 64 you know that can't be true; but as she flashes a grin, it's hard to not believe her.
