This photo says a lot about Mechi. She's one of the strongest characters out of the group. Out of the ten women, she is the only single mother. (Of three young children.) Mechi has no income, but she gets by as best she can.
Mechi is also different from the others in that she has been sewing on a machine for years. Our simple starter projects take her no time.
"My goal is to have my own sewing business where I can invest my time and savings so we can prosper economically, and I will be able to offer my children a better future." -Mechi Guerrero
