Notes
-  Interview with Milagros Cueto and Aurora Goicoeche. Milagros provided translation for Aurora. Both women work for Elsa Mantilla, making dresses on the third floor of her shop on 21st Avenue.
-  Summary of audio segment: TC asks whether MC will remain in the US. MC agrees, and says she plans to stay. TC asks about MC's daughter, and her plans to be a fashion designer. Is MC teaching her to sew? MC says no, because she's a little girl, will be in third grade. Maybe when she starts high school she can start. MC says but she suggests only [doesn't pressure her?]. MC says her daughter drew a nice house, and told MC that she was going to buy the house for MC when she studies and has money. And she points out dresses she wants for her wedding. MC suggested that her daughter might want to learn to design dresses. But her daughter is young, and you never know what you'll want in the future. But in this country, fashion designing is a good way to make money.
