Wendy, 33, is married and has 4 children. She operates her business with an aunt who has a dining room they use.
Wendy is applying for a Fundacion Campo loan that she will use to buy the supplies she needs--vegetables, fruits, meat, detergent--to operate her business. The investment will allow her to support her family and educate her children. She says that she feels squeezed with the little income she has now and adds that she would like to buy a house of her own one day.
Wendy tiene 33 años de edad, esta casada y tiene 4 hijos. Ella trabaja junto a una tía cocinando ya que posee un comedor.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar verduras, frutas, carnes, granos básicos, detergentes para instalar una tienda y para elaborar los deliciosos platillos que vende en el comedor. De esta manera, podrá obtener mejores ingresos para su familia y brindarle a sus hijos educación ya que muchas veces se ve muy ajustada con los ingresos que recibe. Su deseo es poseer su propia casa.
