As the father of eight, Marcos knows how difficult it can be to work and care for a family. At his workshop, he employs others from his community. Most are young single mothers. He ensures that they have flexible schedules that enable them to care for their children.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

"When I was thirteen, a neighbor taught me the art of gold leaf... to make golden mirrors. I fell in love with this art and it has stayed with me all my life. Eventually I set up my own workshop and I have been able to teach this art to younger workers. I am proud of this - gold leaf has been an important Peruvian art since colonial times and once there were many workshops. Now my workshop is one of the few that produce gold leaf mirrors. To pass this art to the next generation is one of the gifts I have been given."
