Heroina Del Consuelo
Heroína Consuelo R. S. is 52 years old and has been in the shaved ice business for 13 years. This is icy treat that is sold at a reasonable price and is very easy to make. She is also a docent at a public school, but her income isn’t enough to cover her family’s expenses, which is why she began selling her products as a mobile vendor. Her business has grown little by little, and now has a tricycle from which she sells her shaved ice. The financing she is requesting will go towards working capital. Her dream is to provide her son with a university education, as she cannot currently afford to provide him with one.
