Remedios
View original language description ↓
Remedios F. Quispe is a mother with four children. She prepares and sells food from a cart in all of the markets in El Alto.

She has participated with Pro Mujer for five years, which is the same amount of time that she has had this business. Thanks to Pro Mujer she was able to buy what she needed to get started. Remedios used to make cinnamon ice cream, but she had to quit that business to take care of her children, who were very young.

Now she tends to her food cart with help from her children, due to the existing demand and her need to generate income. She is in need of money to buy a mini-bus, which her husband can use to facilitate their work. This will lessen the work load on Remedios and also her children, who work alongside her.
