    Ometepec is a small community in the state of Oaxaca. Its name means “place between two hills." In this area there is a lot more than meets the eye. Its people come from a native group called “amuzgos." The meaning of this word is “place where there are libraries,” perhaps because of the features of sensitivity and wisdom of the inhabitants. Their eternal principle is to keep a balance between society and nature. For instance, they continue creating their typical embroidered clothing, which is embellished with a natural dye. Also, when they come down to the reefs in the ocean, they gently extract the color of the winkles and put the little animal back into the sea. Epifania lives in Ometepec. She is a single mother of two children, Mariano and Aranza, who are attending school. Epifania has been selling sodas and other beverages for more than twenty years. She decided to start in this line of work because she wanted and still desires to offer the best opportunities to her children. Thanks to the success of the business, Epifania was able to improve her quality of life and that of her children. She has had the opportunity to buy essential goods and has never had to face an outstanding problem. Epifania would like to expand her business with a loan from World Vision.
