In a Tegucigalpa construction site filled with reinforced steel, concrete, and lots of men, you can also find Carmen Carrasco, a 23-year-old Empleando Futuros graduate. Carmen is an iron assembler (armadora de hierro) at one of Honduras’ largest construction companies. To work in her male-dominated field, Carmen has to be tough; she is a fighter, filled with dreams for her future. Carmen is also from Las Ayestas, one of the most violent neighborhoods in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.
This success story was produced by the USAID-funded Empleando Futuros project.
