Claudia Roxana
Claudia is 24 years old. She has a partner and two children. When she was 10 years old, she learned to work the land. Her parents are the ones that taught her, since there was no other trade to learn or subject to study. She grows corn and vegetables such as cucumbers, tomatoes and chiles that she sells within her own community. To arrive at the land where she plants she has to walk two kilometers on foot on very steep hills and streets, since it's close to a mountain. To buy the farming materials, she has to go down through steep streets till she gets to the place where she can catch the bus, which takes thirty minutes.

The loan she is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy 8 sacks of fertilizer, 50 pounds of corn, seeds and other materials to grow corn and vegetables. For her it is difficult to travel to town to buy the materials, and with the investment she will buy in a large quantity so that she won't have to travel as much and can save time and money. She will also use the materials in a timely manner. Her goal is to finish her brick house that she building little by little.

Claudia tiene 24 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene dos hijos. Desde la edad de los 10 años aprendió a cultivar la tierra; fueron sus padres quienes le enseñaron, ya que no había otro oficio o estudio que aprender. Ella cultiva maíz y hortalizas, como pepino, tomate y chile los que vende al interior de la misma comunidad. Para llegar al terreno en donde siembra tiene que caminar dos kilómetros a pie por laderas y calles muy empinadas ya que esta cerca de un cerro. Para comprar los insumos agrícolas, debe bajar por calles empinadas hasta llegar al lugar en donde aborda el autobús que tarda treinta minutos.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 8 sacos de fertilizantes, 50 libras de maíz, semilla y otros insumos para el cultivo de maíz y hortalizas. A ella se le dificulta viajar al pueblo a comprar los insumos y con la inversión comprara por mayor para no viajar tanto y ahorrar tiempo y dinero al mismo tiempo que hará uso de los insumos en el tiempo oportuno. Su objetivo es terminar de construir su casa de ladrillo que poco a poco la esta construyendo.
