Greysi Lilibeth
Greysi is 25 years old. She has five years of experience in her line of work, which is making and selling tortillas. She has partially completed her education. She lives in a common-law relationship, and her partner works in an automotive repair shop. They have 2 dependant children who are aged 5 and one, and who are not yet in school. She owns a business that sells tortillas, which is an activity that she learned from her mother. She decided to start her business out of a need to support and educate her children. She works out of her home so that she does not pay taxes, and together with her life partner she is thinking about increasing her income. The loan that she is requesting is to buy corn and have a reserve supply, because it is bought by the pound, and by buying wholesale she can improve her earnings. In addition to this she will buy firewood and other supplies that she needs to expand her business. She hopes that this will result in better earnings and an improvement in her quality of life, as she can acquire better housing. She has decided to grow her business little by little by investing in it to improve it. In the future she hopes that her children will obtain at least a technical diploma, and that she can build an adequate home, since she does not have sufficient financial resources. She has taken advantage of the help from the Fundacion Campo to expand her business and in doing so to hire assistants to meet the demand.
