Doña Santo was inducted into the army during the civil war in El Salvador. The army seized her village and she had no choice but to succomb. But, as she says, “I was a clandestine.” I work during the day doing whatever jobs I could find. I reported to the guerrillas the plans of the army - when they were attacking and where - because I could overhear their discussions as I worked. Though an unwilling hostage, I was not conquered.” Doña Santo is now part of a savings group in El Salvador.
