Guadalupe is a wife, mother, and mobile food vendor in Brooklyn. She’s worked jobs ranging from housekeeper to attendant at a dry cleaners. But commuting for hours every day at jobs she didn’t love prevented her from seeing the very people she was doing it for: her family.
So she decided to become her own boss. She began selling tamales door-to-door six days a week, sometimes going to bed around 2AM and waking up at 4AM to continue preparing for the upcoming day. It was hard, but becoming a small business owner let her pick her hours.
You can find Guadalupe any day. She has been a member of SVP for years. Our #LiftTheCaps campaign exists to help people like her. To learn more about her, and sign the petition, go here.
