Marleny Del Carmen
Marleny is a 31-year-old single mother. Her 16-year-old son lives with his paternal grandparents, while her other sons, ages 9 and 3, live with her. She rents the house they have been living in for the past five years for $50 a month. She works hard, washing and ironing laundry for neighbors in the morning and charging $2.50 per dozen pieces. She helps a friend make tortillas for $5 each day. In the evenings, she cleans a restaurant in the city.

Marleny is applying for a loan to buy a dining room set and clothing for her children. She does not have furniture in the house where her family can eat together and her children can do their homework. She hopes to keep working to buy her own house and to see her children study for professional careers.
