Juana Asael
Juana is 57 years old and is a mother of two children. She has worked all her life as a street vendor selling clothes, which means she has to go from house to house in various communities to offer the clothing she has for sale. This is how she has brought up her 2 children. She also has 2 sewing machines on which she makes sheets, pillowslips and other garments which people ask her for. Her parents were unable to send her to school and for this reason she has never been able to have a formal or decent job. That is why she found selling clothing as a street vendor was her only way of making an income. She has to walk all day to offer her clothing to as many people as possible. Sometimes she has to leave items on credit and return later to collect what she is owed, although this is risky as sometimes people do not pay her.

To buy her stock she has to travel to the city, which is a 10 minute journey away by bus. In the city she makes her purchases and then returns home to prepare the stock for sale before going out to sell.

The loan she is asking for from Fundación Campo will be used to buy various amounts of clothing for men, women and children and also to invest in some items with which she wants to improve her home.

In this way she will have a very varied range of clothing and will increase her stock with the aim of satisfying her customers, since she will be able to take them the sort of clothing they like. She will also be able to give them lower prices and avoid having to go to the city all the time to buy stock. This will help her business to become more stable and reliable and make her income stable and permanent.
