Juana Leticia
Juana is 42, lives with her partner, and has three children. For 20 years she been doing washing and ironing for other people who ask for this service in some towns and rural settlements near her community.

When she doesn't have ironing and washing work, Juana sells empanadas, enchiladas, and fried or stewed yuca. All her life, Juana has had to pay rent for her house, but last year she built her own house because an uncle gave her a piece of land so that she could build the house.

Juana has been a client of Fundación Campo for several years already, and has showed herself to be a responsible and very determined person. She saves a little of the money she earns washing and ironing so that when she doesn't have this work, she goes to the city to buy what she needs to sell the foods mentioned above.

Juana is applying to Fundación Campo for a loan to install electricity in her home. This way, she will have a basic service in her house, and it will help her increase her sales. She says that with the investment, she will no longer smoke up her house by burning candles, and will save more, because she won't have the expense of gas, or the need to buy radio batteries.

She intends to stop washing and ironing someday, in order to buy a refrigerator and sell charamuscas and chocobananos (both are Salvadoran frozen treats), as well as soft drinks and candy.

La señora Juana tiene 42 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene tres hijos. Ella tiene 20 años de dedicarse a lavar y planchar de otras personas que demandan este servicio en unas ciudades y en algunos caseríos cercanos a su comunidad.

Cuando no tiene trabajo de lavar y planchar, Juana vende empanadas, enchiladas, yuca salcochada o frita. La señora Juana toda su vida ha tenido que pagar el alquiler de su casa, pero el año pasado construyo su propia casa, por que un tío le regalo el terreno para que construyera la casa. Juana ya tiene varios años de ser cliente de la Fundación Campo y ha demostrado ser una persona responsable y muy luchadora. Del dinero que gana de planchar y lavar ahorra un poco para cuando no tiene este trabajo, ella va a la ciudad a comprar lo necesario para hacer las ventas antes mencionadas.

Ahora la señora Juana solicita un préstamo a Fundación Campo, para instalar la energía eléctrica en su casa, de esta forma ella tendrá un servicio básico en su casa y le ayudara a incrementar sus ventas. Ella manifiesta que con la inversión ya no se le va a ahumar su casa con la luz del candil y ahorrara más, por que no tendrá el gasto de gas y la compra de baterías para su radio.

Ella piensa dejar de planchar y lavar más adelante, para comprar una refrigeradora y vender charamuscas, chocobananos, refrescos y golosinas.
