Clara Judith
Clara is 23 years old and is separated from her life companion with two children.

For a year now she has devoted herself to working at a tortilla shop, earning $3.00 dollars a day, from 6 a.m. until 12 noon. Afterwards she goes out to sell pastries door-to-door. Clara travels for thirty minutes three times a week to a city in the eastern part of the country to purchase the pastries.

Clara is seeking a loan from Fundación Campo in order to purchase pigs and butcher them, then to go out and sell the meat door-to-door. This was the business her grandmother taught her when she was a child. She will also invest in the purchase of a greater variety of pastries, because owing to a lack of money she does not offer a variety of pastries.

In this way Clara will have her own business, and will purchase the pastries at a better price, since when she buys in small amounts it carries a higher price. Furthermore she will satisfy her customers' demand, and bring in a better income, which will help her improve her children's quality of life.

She will save in order to build a house for her children, since they are living in her grandmother's house.
