María Angelica
María, 35, is a single mother of two children. She’s been making tortillas for the last ten years, an occupation she learned from her mother. María used to just work doing her domestic chores at home but later on installed a small store and started also selling tortillas. Due to life’s circumstances, she stopped doing so. The loan she’s asking from Fundación Campo will be used to reactivate the store; she will buy basic staples and also to restart the tortilla sales. Both businesses will be home-based.

She is seeking to restart her businesses because she needs an additional source of income to cover all her family expenses such as health, schooling, food, etc., even more so because she’s who watches over her children’s well-being. Her greatest wish is that her children become professionals so they can improve their quality of life.

María tiene 35 años de edad, es madre soltera de dos hijos. Desde hace 10 años elabora tortillas; oficio que aprendió de su madre. Antes María solo realizaba los oficios domésticos en su casa. Luego instalo una pequeña tienda y una venta tortillas; pero por circunstancias de la vida lo dejo de hacer. El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para reactivar la tienda comprando productos de la canasta básica y para instalar nuevamente la venta de tortillas; ambos negocios en su casa.

Ella busca reactivar sus negocios; debido a que necesita otra fuente de ingresos para cubrir con los gastos de su familia, como la salud, educación, alimentación, etc. más aún porque ella es la que vela por el bienestar de sus hijos. Pues, su máximo deseo es que sus hijos sean unos profesionales para que mejoren su calidad de vida.
