“We live here in Rosario de Lerma. My husband works in tobacco as a rural laborer. These are times where there are harvests and tobacco and then, they are left with nothing. So this scholarship helped us a lot. It helped my daughter, the whole family. I remember when we went with my older daughter and she said “mom we have money-“
“At that time there was no secondary school in my area. I am from a rural area of Santiago del Estero. The Grano de Mostaza Foundation helped me to be there at the foundation’s house and continue studying with a scholarship that helped me financially. It also had workshops that also helped me to get trained and everything. There, I finished high school and then I had to continue because my dream was to graduate and be a professional. So I came here, to Salta, to continue studying at the public university. Currently, I am in my second year of the national public accountant program”
“This program helps my future because they teach me values. They teach me to improve myself and to have self-confidence”
