HONG KONG (2019) – Concepcion Minoza Mino is a single mother of a 4-year old girl. Like many domestic helpers in Hong Kong, Concepcion moved to Hong Kong primarily to help her child.
Unlike the domestic helpers who Concepcion said usually hang out and take trips during the weekend, she preferred to stay at room during her off hours to save money.
“I am just a useful woman,” Mino said. “I’m not in the top level and not also in the lower level.”
She said she just wants to be an average person and make sure her daughter has a good future.
“I don’t like her to be like me. To come here and be a domestic helper,” Concepcion said.
