Josefina A. and her husband have four children. Two are working, one is in high school, and one is in college. Josefina works hard to cover her daily costs and to pay for her children's education. Josefina runs a small business selling frozen meat to local people.

She hopes that he partnership with CCT will allow her to become more successful. She dreams of a bright future for her children.
