Julieta said she and Mary Jane travel to the bank every month to collect her pension of just $40, which they rely on for their daily subsistence.
She added that she has carried Mary Jane, who was paralyz*d at the age of three and cannot talk or feed herself, for nearly three decades. She fears that Mary Jane might get molested if she leaves her behind.
