María Del Carmen
María, 69, is a widow; she has three children. She started butchering pigs and her three children help with the business. When her husband died she opened a small grocery store which had been growing for three years but then other stores sprung up in the community so she now must stock more variety of goods like beverages, food, basic grains, etc.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy some pigs to butcher and to buy products for the store. She has looked for someone to help her with the butchering; she’ll train him.

María survives with income from the store and with help from her children. She’s always been an enterprising person who has known how to get ahead with her children. Her hope for the store is that it be the best in the community like it once was and that the butchering will last and that her family is proud of her.
