The bloody civil war in El Salvador generated lawlessness. Military formations ruthlessly dealt shortly with civilians. The few Americans living in this country had to throw the houses and to run. On Hector's farm and Milagro the helicopter with armed men arrived. Some peasants managed to hide, but not all. The head of the family Hector completely disappeared. Rumors went that some gangs of military sold men and women and also children in slavery. The vigorous Milagro took management in hand. In several years people began to work at plantations where coffee is grown up again.
