Maria has requested this loan from Fundación Campo, and she plans to use it to buy basic items and increase her inventory. She says that she needs to buy in large quantities, so that she can obtain more income by supplying her store and attracting more customers. This will allow her to provide her children with better conditions and a more dignified life.
