Nery is a 15 single girl who lives in the community of Jiniguare, a long trek into the mountains beyond Santa Ana, Honduras. Nery heard of Mi Esperanza's free sewing training course being offered in Santa Ana from a friend. She walked one hour to find the course and when she did she signed up for the course. Nery knew this was her only opportunity to learn a skill and for seven months she walked one hour to class and one hour home 4 days a week to take advantage of this opportunity.
