Yeni Del Carmen's story

Yeni del Carmen is a hard-working, courageous, and enterprising woman. She works making handcrafted hats, slippers, and other products. She started this business eight years ago with her savings.

She also has a popular restaurant that sells fried foods. Every week, she sells about 7,500 enchiladas, cheese slices, tacos, and roasted meat.

Yeni's goal is to have her own stall, because she currently sells on foot at the market in Masaya.
