Señor De Los Milagros Group's story

Aquila is the Secretary of the “SEÑOR D. LOS MILAGROS” (Lord of Miracles) group. It has 11 members. Aquila is 64 years old but her age is no impediment to continue working. She always got ahead for her children who are all now adults. Despite receiving some help from them she doesn’t want to leave her grocery store which is now well established; it’s been in operation 8 years. It’s called “JUANITO.”

This business has been of great help to her because it helps her meet her personal expenses and not be dependent on anyone; this makes her feel useful and self-sufficient.

She has all kinds of products stocked in her grocery store like: sugar, rice, pasta, all kinds of beverages and cured meats. She always strives to keep it well stocked. The loans are of great use to her because she uses the money to buy beverages like soft drinks, juices, etc. which is what sells the most during the summer season. What she most wants in life is to stay in business and that the business grows a bit more.
