Mama Donata’s household is comprised of herself and three other family members–Aneth who is her daughter, and Prince and Noel who are her grandchildren. Mama Donata’s oldest daughters were unable to support Noel and Prince, so Mama took them into her own home.
Mama spends many days fetching water over a mile away, carrying it back on her head to the town center, and selling it for small amounts of money. She also does seasonal farm work for some income. We are currently exploring small business ideas for Mama Donata.
