Claribel is fifty-nine years old. She has made a living in agriculture for several years. She learned this trade from her mother. She gets up at 4:00 a.m. in order to prepare herself to go to the land where she has her crops. She does this in the company of her grandchildren, who help her.
The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo will be used to buy seeds and fertilizer, and to pay the rent on the land where she does her farming. The investment will be a great help, since she will buy everything that is necessary in order to plant and then have a good harvest.
This will allow her to sell her crops at a good price and to be able to repair her home, which is quite damaged.
Claribel tiene 59 años de edad. Ella se dedica a la agricultura desde hace varios años; oficio que aprendió de su madre. Se levanta a las 4:00 a.m. para prepararse e irse al terreno en donde tiene sus cultivos en compañía de sus nietos quienes son los que le ayudan.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar semilla, fertilizantes y para pago del alquiler de la tierra en donde cultivara. La inversión le será de gran ayuda; ya que comprara todo lo necesario para sembrar y obtener una buena cosecha que le permita vender el grano a buen precio y poder reparar su vivienda que esta bastante deteriorada.
