Santos Carolina
Santos is a 29-year old woman who lives with her partner and has three children. Together with her life partner, she's been working in agriculture for 15 years. She wakes up very early to prepare breakfast, dress one of her children for school and take the other two to her mother's house. She comes back to make lunch and shares the afternoon with the kids helping them with homework. Her older child has a disability.

She's requesting a loan to Fundación Campo to pay the rent of the land where she cultivates corn and beans, and to buy seeds, fertilizer and herbicides. This way she can ensure some space to cultivate and obtain corn and beans for her family. Her dream is for her oldest child to graduate from university so that he can have better work conditions that she does. She also would like to build a house made of brick (her current one is made of layers and serrated ceiling).

Santos tiene 29 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene tres hijos. Junto con su compañero de vida se dedican a la agricultura desde hace unos 15 años. Se levanta muy temprano a preparar el desayuno, luego viste a uno de sus hijos para que se vaya para la escuela y los otro dos los lleva donde su mamá para que se los cuide. Al medio día regresa a preparar el almuerzo y compartir la tarde junto sus hijos ayudándoles en sus tareas escolares y su hijo mayor tiene una discapacidad.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para pagar el alquiler de la tierra en donde cultiva maíz y frijol; y comprar semilla, abono, herbicidas. Así, ella asegurara el lugar en donde realizara sus cultivos para obtener maíz y frijol para la alimentación de su familia. Su sueño es que su hijo se pueda graduar de la universidad; para que trabaje de una manera diferente a ella. Además, quisiera construir una vivienda de ladrillo, ya que la que posee es de lámina y techo aserrado.
