Rocio Del Pilar
Roció lives in Milagro. She is 33 years old and a single mother with three children. Roció started her business six years ago after she earned her diploma. Her experience as a dressmaker resulted from working at a neighbor's house as her assistant. She now works independently without any scheduled breaks. Roció's workshop is located in the living room of her house, which gives her the benefit of spending more time with her family.

With this second loan that she is receiving, Roció plans to acquire another sewing machine as well as fabrics, thread, and needles. This purchase will help increase her production so that she can pay for her children's studies. Her house is made of reeds and her dream is to build one out of cement so that she can have a larger workshop.
