Diana Rocio
Diana is a single mother and head of household. She has two children. Her eldest, Javier, is 17 years old. Last year, for financial reasons, she was unable to enroll him in college. He is currently at home. With faith and hard work, she hopes that he will be able to start university next semester. Diana's other son, Oscar, is 4 years old. He is in pre-school and, thanks to God, he is receiving an education.

Diana works as a carer in family homes, looking after adults. However, the work is sporadic. She lives in a rented apartment and covers all the household expenses herself. The family don't have any luxuries, nor can Diana give her children things they ask for, but she tries to give them what she can within her means. They have to miss out on a lot of things and, if they really want something, Diana has to make sacrifices.

Diana is currently studying in the hopes that she will be able to get ahead and provide a better quality of life for her children and her mother. Diana's mother, Rocio, is 56 years old. Owing to her age, Rocio is out of work. She was a nurse's aide with SENA (the Colombian National Learning Service) but, as a result of her age, the way society is and institutional protocols, she is no longer able to work. Instead, Rocio helps out with the children while Diana goes out to work and attends college.

Three years ago, Diana separated from her husband because of domestic abuse. She no longer has any contact with her children's father and he does not help out financially. Diana has done her best. This agreement will help her a lot as she will need to help her eldest son with transportation costs when he starts studying in June and she also has household expenses to cover. Thankfully, the Institution provided the opportunity to attend classes. She started a little late, when classes had already begun, but thanks to the interest she showed, she is now ahead in her studies and receiving good grades. She hopes to continue in this way right up until graduation day.
