Bernardina is one of our porters who has been working with us for three years. She comes from a community that is far away from the city and is the youngest of her family. Her parents are not able to work and depend on her getting an education and a job. So she made a decision and came to the city to be able to study and find a job. While she was studying her educational center had her start the pre-professional program. She went looking for a company for the program that would also pay her and found Alpaca Expeditions. She was so excited to work at a travel agency and learning all of the trails. After completing her education, she became a tour guide.
