Milagros
Milagros is 33 years old and continues to live in the place in which she was born. She lives in her own home with her husband and three children.

In search of business opportunities, and at the recommendation of her mother-in-law, Milagros started making oven-roasted suckling pig. She now has 11 years experience in selling this food. As it is a traditional dish in her area, her sales have remained stable and she always makes sure that she has the basic ingredient for her meal which are the pigs that she buys on weekends. She then dresses them and prepares them. Milagros has her own oven where she cooks. She fills customers' orders for large events and also sells in the markets. She is helped by her sister-in-law and her mother-in-law who also sell this product. She considers the business to be very profitable and it rewards the effort that she puts in. Her wish is to improve and stock her business so that she can prepare better-quality dishes.

Milagros has been working with MFP through 17 group loans. She feels very proud of this. She shows her commitment by being a member of the board of directors of her community bank. They have placed their trust in her and she feels very satisfied as a result. Milagros will invest the money that she has requested in repairing her oven as it has collapsed owing to the bad way in which it was constructed. It is urgent that she have it repaired as she considers it her essential work tool. For the time being, she is working with her mother-in-law's oven. However, the season when she makes most sales is approaching.

En la búsqueda de oportunidades de negocio y ante la recomendación de su suegra, Milagros se dedica en la elaboración de lechón al horno, de las cuales son ya 11 años de experiencia en sus ventas de éste alimento. Por ser un plato típico de su zona, sus ventas se han mantenido estables y siempre se asegura de tener el ingrediente básico de su preparación que son los cerdos que compra los fines de semana para luego beneficiarlos y prepararlos. Tiene su propio horno donde cocina, asimismo atiende pedidos de los clientes para grandes banquetes, así como aprovecha en vender en las ferias comerciales. Recibe la ayuda de su cuñada y de su suegra que también venden, pues éste negocio lo considera muy rentable, que compensan el esfuerzo que pone. Su deseo es mejorar e implementar su negocio para que sus platillos sean de mejor calidad. Trabaja con MFP a través de los créditos grupales en 17 oportunidades de las cuales se siente muy orgullosa, demuestra su compromiso siendo parte de la junta directiva de su banco comunal que ha depositado la confianza hacia su persona y para ella es una gran satisfacción. El dinero que solicita lo invertirá en la reparación de su horno, ya que se ha derrumbado por la mala construcción que han realizado en su horno y es urgente para ella reparar lo que considera su esencial herramienta de trabajo. Por el momento trabaja en el horno de su suegra, sin embargo se acerca la temporada en donde hay mayores ventas.
