Milagro
Milagro, 35, is the mother of three children; the oldest is 15, the second is 11, and the youngest is three years old. The older ones go to the community school.

She went to school through third grade in the community. She got together with her husband 16 years ago and they have always worked very hard to move their family forward. Milagro comes from a family of seven siblings who worked with her parents in farming. She lives with her husbands and children, and she also has an adopted child who she cares for.

Milagro has worked by selling vegetables for 16 years. When she got together with her husband, he taught her how to work since there is a high demand in the area, because these products are necessary in the human diet.

Before, she had only worked with her family by planting basic grains and doing household chores. She travels to buy merchandise in the city four times a month. She has to travel by bus for an hour and a half to get to her destination, where she buys vegetables. Her children or her husband go along with her.

Sometimes, she goes alone, or with her oldest son, to sell in the outlying communities and in the community where she lives. She doesn’t have a fixed schedule for arriving and leaving, since it depends on the demand in the area where she is selling. She leaves home at seven in the morning and tends to return around two in the afternoon, but this varies.

She needs the loan she is requesting to buy vegetables such as cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage, beets, carrots, chilies, onions, garlic, broccoli, lettuce, and spices such as cinnamon, achiote, pepper, cumin, and more. The rest of the loan will be used to buy wood to improve her home because part of the wood house is damaged.

With this, she hopes to improve her products and offer more to her customers, and in this Christmas season, her sales increase.

She dreams of moving her children forward with their education and also of improving her business from the earnings she makes from the sales in the community and surrounding areas.
