Vidal Del Carmen
View original language description ↓

Vidal del Carmen has been preparing tamales for the past 30 years. This is a typical dish of the region where she lives. She prepares them every evening and she sells them at her house. She is 63 years old and although her children want to support her economically, she feels strong and she stills wants to work. For this reason she will use the loan to buy kitchen accessories and wholesale corn to continue with this activity that helped her keep her family going and that is part of her life. Vidal of Carmen is a part of a group called “Delicias 4”.
