Milagro Del Carmen's story

Milagro del Carmen V. H., 50, is a woman who has always fought to get ahead in life. She has a store in a beach area in La Unión department. It has been in the same place for over 10 years. It’s a very strategic spot because of the large number of tourists that frequent it and buy her products as well as the regular customers who live around the area. Milagro lives with her father, her two children and her husband. The store is the only source of income this family relies on so they all work in it. Milagro is asking for funds to stock the store with perishables and basic needs items like: water, beverages, sweets and others. Milagro is a very strong woman who despite many adverse situations does not lose her desire to get ahead and be better every day.
