Dolores Carrasco was born in Bollullos Par del Condado in 1929, to a humble family of small meat retailers. When she was 11 years old, she had to leave school to work in the butcher's shop located in the local market. At 16, her parents set up their own business.
For 12 years, Lolita, as everyone used to call her, worked with great tenacity, kindness and humaneness in a world full of economic and social inequalities. She courageously managed to make her way in a repressive, male-dominated setting.
Lolita was admired by everybody who knew her, thanks to her professionalism, independence and solidarity with the most disadvantaged.
