Welcome to the Router Forums, Jose Carlos,
Please do keep in mind that routers are probably the most versatile AND the most dangerous of the woodworking tools. I had the advantage of being able to watch the Router Workshop, the TV series upon which this RouterForums is based.
If you have not already done so, you might consider reading the Shop Safety subforum to see some of the things that can happen, and get some ideas on how to avoid these things.
My own bias is against Craftsman brand tools, but it may well be a personal bias. My own and only working router is a Makita 3/12 hp. For very small scale work I have a Dremel, but rarely use it as if it were a router. There are several RouterForums members who use Makita routers, and some of them are of slight build so the powerful motor should not dissuade you. Besides, if you use a jointer, you will soon be doing projects in which the extra power will be useful.
I know, I have opened the "My router is better than your router" can again, but periodically revisiting such issues may not be a bad thing.

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."

- Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
