Bonny Claribel
Bonny, age 28, is in a relationship, and she has two children. One is five years old, and the other is two months. She has been running her own store and a corn flour mill for five years. Before that she sold fruit and vegetables in an itinerant manner. However, when she entered into a relationship she changed houses. Little by little, she was setting up her store. However, due the expenses of the birth of her second child, the store declined because of the lack of money to invest.

She gets up a 5:00 a.m. to open the store and tend to her customers. She gets the products for her store in the city. In order to do so, she has to walk on foot until she gets to the road where she boards a pickup. It takes 45 minutes to get to her destination.

The loan that she is requesting from the Fundación Campo is to buy a ‘quintal’ [1 quintal = 100 kg] of sugar, a quintal of rice, a quintal of salt, four cases of soap, five gallons of cooking oil, 25 dozen packets of bleach, five cases of detergent, and toilet paper, etc. With the other part of the loan she will pay some expenses she still has from the birth.

The loan will be very useful because she will be able to stock her store with a variety of products and she will become solvent with the birth expenses.

Her biggest wishes are for her store to get bigger with lots of customers and for her children to attend the university because she did not have this opportunity.

Bonny tiene 28 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene dos hijos de 5 años de edad y otro de dos meses. Desde hace cinco años administra su propia tienda y un molino de nixtamal. Antes vendía frutas y verduras de manera ambulante; pero cuando se acompaño se cambio de domicilio y poco a poco fue instalando su tienda, pero debido a los gastos del nacimiento de su segundo hijo, la tienda decreció, por falta de dinero para invertir. Se levanta a las 5:00 a.m. a abrir la tienda y atender a sus clientes. Los productos para su tienda, los adquiere en la ciudad; para llegar ahí debe caminar a pie hasta llegar a la carretera en donde aborda un pick up que tarda cuarenta y cinco minutos hasta llegar a su destino.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar un quintal de azúcar, un quintal de arroz, un quintal de sal, cuatro cajas de jabón, cinco galones de aceite, 25 docenas de lejía, cinco fardos de detergente, papel higiénico, etc y la otra parte pagara algunos gastos que le quedaron pendiente del parto. Será de mucha utilidad el préstamo, ya que podrá surtir su tienda de una variedad de productos y quedara solvente con los gastos del parto. Sus grandes son el que su tienda sea más grande y con muchos clientes y que sus hijos estudien en la universidad, debido a que ella no tuvo esa oportunidad.
