Milagros
Milagros is 33 years old and a singular woman. She lives with Alex, her husband of 8 years. they have 3 children whom they care for in the home they own, located in the community of Sicaya. She joined the business of her husband's family, raising pigs and cooking suckling pig (a traditional pork dish). This is her main financial activity. Her work consists of preparing this substantial dish, which she makes at least three times a week. It is sold in festivals all over the valle of Mantaro. Thanks to her job she has gotten to know different towns and customs in the area. She makes good money doing this, but says that it is very tiring to travel and transport the enormous cooked pig. But her hard work is rewarded, since many people pick her good seasoning. Now she wants a place where she can sell her specialty and she will begin a project to open her own restaurant. She knows she can do it with her husband's help. He works in the local city hall, as the mayor's driver. She belongs to the “Sicaya” communal bank and this is her tenth loan with MFP. She feels very happy there because she has been able to make good income all thanks to the financial support they have given her. That is why she promises, once again, to make her payments. She also likes to work in her association, because all of the members are supportive and hardworking people. If Milagros gets your support, she will invest the money in majolica pottery and plaster to improve the oven where she cooks the pigs.
