Carmen Del Rosario
Upon entering Carmen's house, a display case with a variety of products (such as clothing, earrings, hairbands, sandals, and necklaces) adorns the place. Nevertheless, this 52-year-old woman whose smile touches everyone's heart also sells food. She has always been able to keep on working on her own, for 30 years, despite having finished only the first year of secondary school and being the single mother of four children, now adults.

Despite the fact that money has always been limited for Carmen, she has always looked for ways to get ahead. That was how she started everything, with savings from her tips when she sold Eskimo-brand ice-cream bars when she was 22. Her children have always been her support: They send her remittances or help her in her business.

At the moment she needs a loan to buy plantains to fry and sell; oil for cooking; and clothing, necklaces, and sandals to sell. Her goal is to keep on growing.

One of her main plans is to start a restaurant.

Al entrar a la casa de Carmen, una vitrina con diversos productos como ropa, aretes, cintillos, sandalias y collares, adornan el lugar. Sin embargo, para esta señora de 52 años con una sonrisa que toca el corazón de todos, también vende comida, pues ella siempre ha visto cómo seguir trabajando por su cuenta, desde hace 30 años, a pesar de haber llegado a tan solo primer año de secundaria y ser madre soltera de cuatro hijos, ahora independientes.
A pesar que para Carmen el dinero siempre ha sido limitado, siempre ha buscado cómo trabajar para salir adelante. Fue así cómo empezó todo, con el ahorro de las propinas cuando vendía paletas heladas de Eskimo cuando tenía 22 años. Sus hijos siempre han sido su soporte, ellos le mandan remesas o la ayudan en el negocio. Por el momento necesita de un préstamo para seguir creciendo, comprar plátanos para freírlos y venderlos en la comida, aceite para cocinar, ropa, collares y sandalias para vender, pues su meta es seguir creciendo. Entre sus planes principales está, poner un restaurante.
