Adela
Adela is 55 years old, married, and has five children. For the past 40 years she has been raising vegetables and corn. Even though she is an older woman, she has lots of energy and she must walk up some steep hills to reach her crops. Adela learned the farming trade from her father because it was the only thing he knew how to do. To buy her supplies, she needs to walk through a stony alley to reach the main street in the city, where she boards a bus and travels 45 minutes until reaching the city.


She is requesting a loan through Fundación Campo in order to buy 12 sacks of fertilizer, which cost $56 each, two gallons of herbicide, and corn seed, in order to plant 14,000 square meters or corn and 3,500 square meters of pipían. What she wants to do is buy all of her supplies at the same time so that she can get them for a discount and also doesn’t have to make so many trips into town to buy a little at a time. She also wants to apply them to all of her crops at once to get a better production and income.


She wants to save up to buy two dairy cows so she can obtain daily milk for her family.

La señora Adela tiene 55 años de edad es casada y tiene cinco hijos. Desde hace 40 años se dedica al cultivo de hortalizas y maíz. A pesar de ser una señora con bastantes años, ella tiene una energía muy grande, pues para llegar al terreno donde tiene sus cultivos tiene que caminar por unas colinas muy inclinadas. Adela aprendió el oficio de la agricultura con su papá ya que era lo único que sabia hacer.
Para comprar los insumos agrícolas, ella debe caminar por un callejón pedregoso hasta llegar a la calle principal de la comunidad donde aborda un autobús el cual viaja durante cuarenta y cinco minutos hasta llegar a la ciudad.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 12 sacos de fertilizantes que cuestan $56 dólares cada uno, dos galones de herbicidas y semilla de maíz, para sembrar 14,000 metros cuadrados de maíz y 3,500 metros cuadrados de pipían. Lo que ella quiere es comprar todos los insumos de una sola vez, para evitar tanto viaje al pueblo a comprar por poquitos y obtener una rebaja. Además que aplicara de forma oportuna todos los insumos a su cultivo y obtendrá una mayor producción e ingresos.
Ella desea ahorrar para comprarse unas dos vacas lecheras y obtener el alimento diario para su familia.
