Two sisters in Spain, working to pay for a trip to World Youth Day are now on their way to meet with the Pope.

Back in 2016, Lucia and Maria Suarez began selling bracelets, nativity scenes and gift boxes at their parish to pay for their trip to Krakow.

And now, five years later, their little startup has grown into a family business, allowing them to support their loved ones during the pandemic and earning them a meeting with the Holy Father.

Lucia and Maria’s brand has grown tremendously since they started in 2016. They now also design blazers, vests, dresses and much more.
