Yusmeri Milixa's story

Yusmeri Milixa is 30 years old, in a common-law marriage, has a 6-year-old daughter and her spouse is a driver. They live in the parish of Cascol, which belongs to Pajan canton, known for making crafts from lianas, muyuyo, and wooden boards.

She is an emigrant from Venezuela. By profession she is an IT engineer, but due to not having papers, she cannot practice it in the country. With great desire to get ahead and work for her family, she works at a mini-market and, on her days off, she works at a nursery planting plants.

This loan is to establish a business selling groceries such as rice, oil, sugar, milk, salt, noodles, and other products. Her dreams are to finish building a house and that the economic situation in Venezuela improves. The girl who is in the photo is Yusmeri Milixa's daughter, a minor.
