Ercilia Del Carmen
Ercilia, 70, has a spouse and a son. She’s a Salvadoran woman who stands out for her will to work. She’s raised cattle since the age of 10. For her, this is quite normal since her parents did the same thing. Now, she and her life companion have been doing the same thing for a long time. Sometimes she makes tamales to sell but what she likes best is working with the cattle; that’s what’s she’s passionate about.

Being a cattlewoman, she’s also a merchant. She goes to various livestock fairs, the nearest is about 30 kilometers away, and due to the distance she has to leave at 4am so that she can get the cattle at a better price because the later it gets the higher the price goes because they go from owner to owner and every one of them adds a little more percentage to the animal.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy four calves to fatten up and then sell at a higher price so she can cover her pending expenses. She wants to be able to repay her loan in a good way because she’s grateful to Fundación Campo that supports her when she needs it and at the same time to be able to always generate profits to buy medicine for her life companion who is ill.

Ercilia tiene 70 años de edad, esta acompañada y tiene un hijo. Ella es una mujer salvadoreña que se destaca por sus ganas de trabajar. Desde los diez años trabaja en la crianza de bovinos; para ella eso es muy común; ya que sus padres hacían lo mismo. Ahora con su compañero de vida, se dedican a lo mismo desde hace mucho tiempo. A veces, elabora tamales para la venta pero le gusta mas trabajar con los bovinos ya que eso le apasiona.
Ella al ser ganadera, es comerciante por lo cual se desplaza a las diferentes plazas de bovinos la mas cercana esta a unos 30 kilómetros, debido a la distancia ella tiene que irse a las 4 a.m. para encontrar los bovinos un poco cómodos ya que entre mas tarde los ganaderos los dan mas caros por que pasan de un dueño a otro y cada uno le va ganando un porcentaje al bovino.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar cuatro bovinos para poderlos engordar y posteriormente venderlos a un precio mayor y así poder salir con sus cuentas pendientes que tiene. La cliente desea poder pagar de buena manera su préstamo; ya que esta agradecida con la Fundacion Campo que le apoya cuando ella lo necesita y así a la misma ves poder tener siempre ganancias y comprarle las medicinas a su compañero de vida que esta enfermo.
