Edith is 53 years old. She is married and has three grown children.

For 10 years, she has run her own store selling basic necessity products, such as beans, rice, eggs, bread, corn and more. Recently, she has started a natural medicine business in neighboring communities.

She buys her products ever other week from wholesale stores. It takes her an hour to get to the place where she does her purchases.

The loan she is asking Fundación Campo for is to buy products to stock her store more as well as natural medicines. This way, she can sell more, since there are only two stores in her community and more than 100 families live there. She wants to build one more room on her house and buy some land for her cattle.
