It was really uncomfortable although we always have kept a good relation with neighbors. We shared everything!, bathrooms, kitchen, laundry washbasin, and orchards, so, we were really tired of this situation, almost losing our hope.” Angel Miguel, one of the leaders, remembers that particular moment was really difficult for them because they felt that the government was taking too long to come out with a solution. “The municipality was treating our oneness as community sending families apart in separated locations.”Angel Miguel exclaimed “We stood out from that, we exist for everyone or for no one.” The community decided acquiring a terrain and then they discovered it was a scam, taking part of the money collected by the community. “It couldn’t be worse.” He said, “Then, we heard about CC from Mil Milagros, we never expect that they could listen so well our concerns.” CC raises our hopes and brings life back to our community.” Angel explained during the interview, CC honesty and effectiveness made able to the community became more confident about their capabilities, feeling that it is possible to work together for everyone.
