María Eusebia
María, 57, has a daughter. She got married at the age of 20 and she and her husband went into selling Tule reed crafts and hammocks. She learned the business from her husband and everything was moving along fine back then; they got to know many parts of the country where they’d go to sell their goods. Later, though, due to fate she and her husband separated. He went away and she stayed behind with her daughter who is an adult now. In time, María started to sell clothes and traditional fast-food snacks outside a local school. She buys the merchandise in a city that’s an hour away by bus from where she lives; one of her grandsons goes with her.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy clothes for children and adults and also items of costume jewelry. With this investment she’ll have more merchandise to offer her customers and will have a larger profit margin that will allow her to improve her family’s quality of life. Her dream is to build her own house. She already owns to lots and can build on either one of them. She also wants to buy a vehicle to transport her merchandise to be sold.
