Carmen is an intelligent young lady who is finishing her last year in high school. She has never met her father, and her mother was unable to care for her because of their extreme poverty and because had cancer. Carmen was in another orphanage prior to Pasitos but was forced out because she became very ill. A pastor asked Pasitos founder, Dalma, to take her in and care for her in June of 2009. Dalma was able to get her the medicine she needed and nurse her back to health.

Some of her responsibilities at Pasitos include helping to care for the younger children, mopping, and washing dishes.
