AngelicaAngelica is the president and driving-force behind Buenas Cosas. Angelica was born and raised in Peten Guatemala. Angelica was raised in the jungles of Peten without electricity or running water. At the age of 5 Angelica began overnight trips into the jungle with her father, hunting and gathering food for her 6 brothers and sisters. Angelica juggled machetes long before she watched a television. As a young Guatemalan girl, Angelica witnessed the devastation wrought on her country and its people from Guatemala’s infamous civil war that ended in the 1990s. Angelica actively participated in local politics prior to her launch of Buenas Cosas. Angelica is a mother to 4 children and a strong advocate of natural childbirth. Angelica is a 4th+ generation practitioner of natural medicine and also crafts potent+tasty jungle wine.


 

 

MargaritaMargarita is a 3rd+ generation practitioner of natural medicine. Margarita had 7 children via natural child birth. Margarita’s last child, Miguel, she delivered at home and all by herself – she made Angelica wait outside. Margarita was 9 months pregnant and had been working with Angelica in the fields when she told Angelica she had to go back to the house. When they got back to the house she told Angelica, “Wait outside and tend the kids – I’ll be out in a little bit”. Margarita walked out of the house a couple hours later with Miguel in her arms. Margarita raised all her children as a single mother. Margarita is most comfortable barefoot, surrounded by her loving children and grandchildren.
