Clementina's story

Mrs. Clementina I. Vda. (widow) D. P. is 60 years old and became a widow 10 years ago; she has three adult children: Rossana (teacher), Marlene (lawyer) and Jimmy (3rd year in law school). She used to have a store at her house but could not keep up with it when she became a widow; after a few years and with the loans from the foundation, she started selling jewelry; she also works in the kitchen of the Centro Nacional del Quemado (national burn center). She has several customers at the burn center that help her to continue selling jewelry. Looking ahead, she would like to open a notions store at her house since she will be retiring very soon from the center where she works.
