María Elena
María is twenty-eight years old, is married, and has two children. She has been making a living in trade for about seven years. Before this, she made a living in domestic services. When she married, she wanted to help her husband and first began making stuffed tortillas with her mother-in-law. Later, she also learned to make hamburgers and Mexican cakes. She than set up a small shop with her husband. They began with fifty dollars. Every day, it has grown, and they have installed a grinding mill. They do this so that they can always bring food home to their family.

She says that her life is a little difficult. She gets up at 5:00am to attend to her customers that arrive to buy bread for breakfast. In the afternoon, she goes about ten minutes away from her house to go to a cafeteria where she sells her stuffed tortillas. She returns to her home at about 5:00pm. She says that her dream is to have her own, strong store.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy five sacks of corn, two sacks of beans, 2 quintales (about 100 kilos) of rice, 4 boxes of soap to wash clothing, 10 bundles of bleach, 10 bundles of detergent, 3 demijohns of oil, 2 boxes of tomatoes, 5 boxes of soup, 2 quintales of sugar, 3 bundles of toilet paper, 1 bundle of disposable plates, 3 shelves, 10 cartons of eggs, 2 quintales of salt, 1 box of toothpaste, 2 boxes of noodles, and ice cube trays. She also wants to improve her store premises.

The loan will supply her with what she needs and will help her to be able to improve her store. There are many products that customers ask for that she does not have. With the loan, she will be able to provide a better service to her clients. She will be able to make better profits and to offer a greater quality of life to her family.

Her dream is to have a house made of brick. The house she currently has is made of adobe. She also dreams of having a mini supermarket, and of having a car in order to transport her products from the store.
