Carlos Domingo
Carlos Domingo T.'s business is making different types of clothes and silk screen printing. He has been in this business for 4 years and has a small workshop in his home. He has employees who help him to fill the orders that he has every week. His siblings support him by selling his products.

Carlos is 24 years old and still lives with his mom. His dad died 15 years ago and left them alone. Carlos started working from house to house when he was little and thereby helped to get his mom and younger siblings ahead in life. His greatest wish now is to expand his workshop, to buy an 'octopus' (a machine that will help him with his silk screen printing) and to buy more material for making t-shirts.
