Heroina Del Consuelo's story

Heroína Consuelo R. S. is 52 years old and has been in the shaved ice business for 13 years. This is icy treat that is sold at a reasonable price and is very easy to make. She is also a docent at a public school, but her income isn’t enough to cover her family’s expenses, which is why she began selling her products as a mobile vendor. Her business has grown little by little, and now has a tricycle from which she sells her shaved ice. The financing she is requesting will go towards working capital. Her dream is to provide her son with a university education, as she cannot currently afford to provide him with one.
