Miguel Angel's story

Miguel Angel is a hardworking humble man. He is originally from San Sebastián Ixcapa. Some of their crafts are hand embroidered fabrics, small-scale pottery, pots, griddles, casseroles, pitchers, and ovens to make bread.

Some of the dances are the Dance of the Devils, the Masks, the Cowboys, and the Dancing Straw Bulls.

Miguel, as he is called, tells us that he has worked selling soft drinks for some years and he likes the business very much because he makes a good profit and because in his community there is no soft drink warehouse from which to buy at wholesale.

He is happily married to Lizbeth and they have four children called Cielo, Ofelia, Violeta and Milagros who help him in his soft drink business. He tells us that he began his business by buying a few drinks and with the earnings and the help of his wife he was buying a little more, until he was successfully selling as a wholesaler .

He has requested a loan in order to buy more soft drinks to sell at wholesale.

He gives thanks to the foundation for the help given to all the people who want to grow their businesses.
