María Concepción
María, 34, is single and has two daughters. She’s worked for more than ten years making enchiladas, fried bananas, fried manioc, nuégados [sweet made from flour, nuts and honey] and chilate [beverage made from roasted corn, chili and cocoa often flavored with anise, pepper, ginger and cinnamon]. She then sells these products in the market from 1pm until 6pm; she also sells coffee and chocolate. She learned this activity from her mother who taught her how to process and make these products.

She buys the raw materials in her city’s central marked located about half a kilometer from where she lives. The products she buys are cabbage, manioc, corn, green plantains and oil, among others.

The loan she’s requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy six cabbages, a quintal of corn, six baskets of manioc, 150 green plantains, 5 gallons of oil, among others. Part of the loan will be used to continue building her house. With this investment her sales will increase and she’ll earn higher profits thus having more economic solvency to cover household expenses and help with her granddaughters’ schooling costs.

Her plan for the future is to continue with the house construction because she currently does not have the resources needed to finish the construction project.
