Dolores Del Carmen
.

Dolores del Carmen P. D. F., 47, lives in Ilopango, San Salvador department, with her husband, who is a carpenter, and their 17-year-old daughter, who is a student. Dolores sells cosmetics from home and door-to-door among her friends and neighbors. She also prepares lunches at home which she has been selling for five years now; this has created a regular customer base.

Dolores is asking for funding to buy a larger quantity of ingredients for her lunches so that she can increase the number of customers served; often, some are unable to buy her lunches because she runs out of them too soon. She also hopes to buy more cosmetics at a variety of prices so that she can attract a wider variety of customers. This fills her with hope that her sales will increase and she will be able to help her husband meet household expenses.
