Sonia has been able to use her earnings over the years to buy land and is gradually building a home, one brick at a time, on that land. All her children are in school today. She is still working for Papillon as a manager in the metal stamping room. She has since gone on to get married (a luxury most poor cannot afford) and has a beautiful baby girl from that union who is growing well and is in the Apparent Project on-site preschool.
Although she is so happy that her children are all able to go to school, she has dreams for herself as well. She wants to keep learning English so that she can one day be promoted to an administrative position and work on order fulfillment and packing lists. At forty-three, she feels like it is her time to shine. It has been an honor to see Sonia raise her family with consistent care and dignity. She is just one of many who are shattering their own glass ceilings by being empowered with work.
