Rosa Isabel
Rosa, 37, has lived with her life companion and their three children for the last five years. She does domestic chores and her husband works on his crops. She inherited the agricultural work from her parents since they live in a very productive zone. In addition to helping her husband with the agricultural activities, Rosa has been raising pigs and running a small grocery store at home for the last four years. With both businesses she’s remodeled her house since they used to live in a metal sheet house and now they built it with concrete blocks, the result of their hard work and thanks to having managed their business well.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy seeds, fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide and to pay labor costs. She will also buy three sacks of pig feed and basic staples like sugar, salt, rice, beans, soft-drinks and juices, among others to stock her store.

Now that the rainy season has returned, they want to plant corn that will be their food for the coming year. With the purchase of the pig feed she will finish fattening up the ones she has. Among her plans is to brick her house so that it will be more comfortable.

Rosa tiene 37 años de edad, vive con su compañero de vida y sus tres hijos desde hace cinco años. Ella se encarga de realizar los oficios domésticos y su esposo de trabajar en sus cultivos. El trabajo agrícola les fue heredado por sus padres, ya que viven en una zona muy productiva. La señora Rosa, además de ayudar a su esposo en las actividades agrícolas, se dedica desde hace cuatro años a la crianza de cerdos y a atender una pequeña tienda de productos básicos en su casa. Con ambos negocios han remodelado su vivienda, debido a que vivían en una casa de lámina y ahora la construyeron de bloque a base de mucho esfuerzo y gracias que han sabido administrar el negocio.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar semillas, fertilizantes, herbicidas, pesticidas, pago de mano de obra; tres sacos de comida para sus cerdos; azúcar, sal, arroz, fríjol, entres otros productos de la canasta básica y algunas bebidas gaseosas y jugos para la tienda.

Con el regreso de las lluvias quieren aprovechar a sembrar el maíz, que les servirá para su alimentación el próximo año. Además, con la compra del alimento de los cerdos, terminara de engordar los que tiene. Entre sus planes esta el enladrillar su casa, para tener una mayor comodidad en su hogar.
