Milagro Del Carmen
51-year old Milagro Del Carmen L. D. M. lives in the municipality of Apopa in the capital of El Salvador. She lives with her husband who works in the mill and brings in US$100 for their family consisting of four children, all of whom are students and still dependent on them. Milagro is a responsible mother; she always attends to their needs, and says that her children are what motivates her on a daily basis to carry on working. She wants to give them the opportunity to get a good education, something that neither Milagro nor her husband has been able to achieve.

Milagro owns a store selling products for the home, and as well she sells puposas (a typical dish from El Salvador like a tortilla) and tortillas. She wants to use the loan to buy more goods for her store and to buy ingredients for the pupusas and tortillas so that she can increase production.
