I am Delmi Ramos and I met Carmen, founder of Caridad Inc., at the restaurant where I used to work 12 years ago. I was raising my two children by myself, with no financial support from their father. I had two jobs in order to pay for expenses. Just when i thought that was going to be my life forever, I approached Carmen and asked her if she would assist and guide me to a better life with my children. The first thing she asked me was what were my goals and dreams. I said to her I would like to own my own restaurant. I also told her that I felt very alone and I would like to get married again. She told me that was not impossible, as we live in America and if we work hard and do the right thing we will acomplish our dreams. Carmen started coaching me on all the steps to take, not only to have the restaurant but also to find a partner. I am happy to say that I now own 3 restaurants, I have been married to my husband for 10 years, and last but not least, I reaffirmed my faith in God. I believe that all one needs to do is to be humble enough to listen and follow the advice we receive – to try a different path than the one that is currently not working, and to have the courage to see beyond all the obstacles that come our way. We must have faith that God will help us achieve our dreams.
