Maria is 50 years old and comes from Yarina Cocha near Pulcallpa. Maria began dieting plants at 20 years old. She is has a quiet and unassuming character yet her ikaros are the most unusual and “otherworldly” sounding during ceremony.
She very much enjoys her work at the Temple which has provided her with an income to support her family after struggling financially for many years around Yarina Cocha
