Karen Torres works with a woman-owned business in Colombia that hires many Afro-Colombians and indigenous people who are displaced, either to look for work, or to flee violence. The collective is run by Isabel, whose inspiration came from her deep desire to always be an artist. As a single mom, friends encouraged her to enter an art show. She took out a loan to cover the booth fee, and the show was a huge success. She started to hire other women who lived on the margins of society. Her first employee was Johanna, an Afro-Colombian mother of four who left her small town in Choco to look for work in the big city. She is now the workshop manager.
