La mayor parte de su vida, Delsy la ha dedicado al cuidado de su hogar y a sus tres hijos que hoy tienen dieciocho, once y siete años. No fue sino hasta cuando una amiga le comento sobre los préstamos de EDAPROSPO que empezó a pensar que la idea de tener un negocio propio le seria menos difícil. Es así que empezó a vender gaseosas.

Poco a poco, en tres años, ha ido aumentando el negocio en la cantidad de mercadería. Hoy en día no solo vende gaseosas también cervezas y algunos dulces. Por otro lado, Delsy también es propietaria de un mototaxi, transporte que alquila para que sea trabajado.

Mas adelante, Delsy tiene planeado conseguir el capital suficiente para poder comprar un automóvil y alquilarlo como taxi. Ella y su esposo se encargan de mantener el hogar. Su esposo trabaja como soldador para una empresa.
