Carmen, at 63 years old, is full of life and with projects that she wants to put into action. Given her difficult financial situation, Carmen has had to deal with many difficulties and work as a domestic servant for various families. She currently makes a living selling fast food from her home, which she does as well as selling catalogue products. She does this work in order to earn money to support her family.
