Rocio Elizabeth's story

Roció Elizabeth is 47, divorced, and has four children. She has been working for a year in a maquiladora (assembly plant), as a line operator making automobile harnesses.

She does this with the aim of providing her children with a better quality of life. In addition, one of her daughters, who is the eldest, contributes money to help her with the household expenses.

For Rocío, it is very important to have a house in good condition, because it is the legacy she can give her children. She lives in subsidized housing, and improvements have not been done for several years; so on some of the walls you can now see moisture stains. For this reason, she wants to buy paint and paintbrushes, so that she can paint it and have it look good.
