Virginia, known as Vicki, is a very special woman whom we have had the privilege of getting to know within our program. She lives in a small town in Oaxaca called Barrio Bajo Etla. Vicki is an architect by trade but uses her En Vía micro-loans to invest in her herbal remedy business. Using natural ingredients from the family’s organic garden, she produces soap and herbal balms. She sells her goods at a local market and clients come to her house. Vicki also buys ropa típica, traditional clothing, which she sells in her town. She can often be spotted in Oaxaca city wearing lovely embroidered blouses.
