Ángela De Jesús
Angela is 41 years old, she has a partner and five children. She has been working in agriculture since she was a child; it was her father who taught her and her brothers to work hard to bring money home. Today, in addition to working in agriculture with her life partner, she also makes and sells pupusas at a school. She gets household and production supplies in a city about 25 kilometers from her home; due to the transportation shortage, she has to wait for hours for a bus to come by.

The loan she is requesting from Fundacion Campo is to buy 5 bags of seed, 20 quintals (1 quintal = 100 pounds) of manure, fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. With this investment, she can buy all the supplies at once, saving herself a lot of travel, especially with the difficulty of transportation where she lives. Her intention is to continue working, and for her children to study to be professionals.

Ángela tiene 41 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene cinco hijos. Se dedica a la agricultura desde que era una niña; fue su padre quien le enseño a ella ya sus otros hermanos a trabajar muy fuerte para llevar el sustento a su hogar. Hoy en día, además de trabajar en la agricultura junto a su compañero de vida, también elabora y vende pupusas en una escuela. Los insumos que necesita para sus actividades productivas y para el hogar las adquiere en una ciudad que esta a 25 kilómetros de su casa; por existir escasez en el transporte debe esperar por horas para que pase el autobús.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 5 bolsas de semilla, 20 quintales de abono, fertilizantes, herbicidas y pesticidas. Con la inversión, comprar todos los insumos de una sola vez, ahorrándose tanto viaje y más con la dificultad del trasporte en el lugar en donde vive.
