Typical day of a student: Mileydi López Chavarría is 17 years old and in grade 6. Her day starts are 4am, helping her mom prepare breakfast, cleaning the house and washing clothes by hand. Afterwards, she gets ready for school and walks over about 800 meters from her home. School starts at 7:30am and goes to 1pm. In the afternoons, she works as a maid, earning c$400 ($16US) each month. She does her homework at night. Saturday and Sunday she works as well. Her hope is to continue her studies into high school.
