Maria, the mother of two sponsored children, sells newspapers on a busy street corner in Santa Ana, El Salvador, to support her family. She earns $4.50 a day, not enough to cover expenses.
She receives health care and food provisions for her family through CFCA sponsorship. Sponsorship support also enables Maria to provide an education for her children in the hope that they can break the cycle of poverty.
That’s why Maria continues to brave rush-hour traffic, blazing heat and pounding rain to sell newspapers.
