Adela Del Carmen
Adela is 36 years old. She is married and has three minor children. She has been raising cattle for ten years. She also works as a salesperson in the cafeteria of the school in her community. But the salary is very low. For that reason she also buys young bulls to fatten with grazing, in order to obtain other income, although for this activity her husband helps her.

She buys the animals at the street market. To get there she gets on a truck that takes 45 minutes going, and another 45 minutes coming back.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy three young bulls, in order to fatten them with grazing, and to buy vitamins and anti-parasite medications for her animals. With the investment, she will have another source of income at her disposal. What she gets at the cafeteria is very little for feeding her family and for her children's education.

Adela intends to save, in order to offer her children a university education.

La señora Adela tiene 36 años de edad, es casada y tiene tres hijos menores de edad. Desde hace 10 años se dedica a la cría de ganado, también trabaja como vendedora en el cafetín de la escuela en su comunidad. Pero el sueldo es bajo, por esa razón también compra novillos de engorde en repasto para obtener otros ingresos, aunque para esta actividad también le ayuda su esposo.

Los animales los compra en el tiangue, para llegar ahí aborda un camión que tarda cuarenta y cinco minutos de ida y otros cuarenta y cinco de regreso.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar tres novillos para engordarlos con repasto; para comprar vitaminas y desparacitantes para sus animales. Con la inversión ella dispondrá de otra fuente de ingresos ya que los que recibe en el cafetín son muy pocos para la alimentación de su familia y para la educación de sus hijos. Adela pretende ahorrar para brindarles el estudio universitario a sus hijos.
