María Delmy
Maria is 42, married and has two children. She is a housewife and also works selling seafood. Before selling seafood, Maria washed and ironed clothes for other people who paid for her services. Thanks to a friend that worked in this activity, she learned and now has been selling seafood for four years, she sells fish and shrimp. To buy the seafood her trip takes six hours because she has to use three different trips.

The loan requested to Fundacion Campo, is to buy more seafood and to pay someone to help her sell it. With the investment Maria will have money available to buy enough seafood to supply her clients and obtain enough income to buy some cattle for her husband and for her children to farm basic grains. Also, she wants her seafood business to expand.

Maria tiene 42 años de edad, es casada y tiene dos hijos. Ella es ama de casa y también se dedica al comercio de mariscos. Antes de comercializar con mariscos, María se dedicaba a lavar y planchar de personas que pagan por esos servicios. Gracias a una amiga que se dedicaba a esa actividad, ella aprendió y hoy ya tiene cuatro años de realizarlo, vende pescado y camarones. Para comprar el marisco le toma seis horas el viaje ya que debe abordar tres medios de transporte.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar más mariscos y para pagar a una persona que le ayude a venderlo. Con la inversión María tendrá disponible dinero para comprar suficientes marisco para satisfacer a sus clientes y obtener ingresos suficientes para comprar una yunta de bueyes para que su esposo y sus hijos cultiven los granos básicos. Además, desea que su negocio de venta de marisco incremente.
