Blanca Udelia
Blanca is 38 years old, married with three children, of whom only two are living with her.

She has been working in tailoring for 22 years. She learned the work by making her own clothing, assembling new pieces and taking apart old ones, and so she was successful making a uniform for her sister and little by little she was making band uniforms, and later learned to make bridal gowns. Currently she is making 780 garments a year for some schools and other work for individuals. She has two employees that work with her. When she finishes the uniforms she hires a vehicle to transport them to the school. In order to buy products for her business, she takes a bus that takes about three hours to get to the agency where she makes her purchases two times a year, but owing to the distance she prefers to stock up all at one time.

The loan that she is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy two heifers, as with the investment she wants to make good use of the remains left behind of her husband’s harvest and increase the possibility of producing milk for family consumption.

Her dream is to have a steady job since making garments is two times a year.

Cuando termina los uniformes paga un vehiculo para trasladarlos a la escuela.

Para comprar los productos para su negocio, aborda un autobús que tarda unas tres horas hasta llegar a la agencia en donde compra, estas compras las realiza dos veces al año, ya que debido a la distancia prefiere surtirse de todo de una sola vez.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar dos novillas. Con la inversión, pretende aprovechar los residuos que quedan de las cosechas que hace su esposo e incrementara la posibilidad de producir lácteos para consumo de su familia.
