Milagro De La Paz's story

Milagro is 37 years old. She did not study. When she was small, academic study was not very important. She is married and has 5 children who live with her and are financially dependent on her. Her husband traveled to the USA to work in order to be able to provide a better quality of living for his family. He works in construction and sends money to his family. The children are all in school, none of them work.

Milagro is taking care of her children and growing corn. She has five years experience doing this activity which she learned from her parents. The place where she works is close to her house and she walks there in 20 minutes. Her children help her when they are not in school.

She will buy cement, sand, gravel and re-bar with the loan so that she can finish constructing her house and live in a more secure and quiet place. She plans to continue to improve the house and she wants her children to get ahead and prepare themselves academically. She is certain that the loan will help her have a more secure and comfortable house for her family.
