Milagros Xiomara
Milagros is a single mother; she has two children who are 2 and 6 years of age, the six-year-old attends school.

Our client sells food. She chose this type of work thanks to her mother who also sold food in the summer. She’s had the business for the last two years and earns about 400 soles per week.

The challenge Milagros faces is caring for her children because she has to share what little time she has with them and the restaurant. Her mother helps her face this challenge caring for the children while she tends to the business.

Milagros’ dream is to have a large restaurant with a variety of dishes to provide her children with what’s necessary. She will use the loan to buy more ingredients and accessories for the restaurant.

She is an enterprising, tenacious person who is very grateful to Caja Señor de Luren for the opportunity provided.
