Vicenta
Vicenta is 40 years old, she is a single mother who did not have the chance to go to school. She has 8 children: the eldest and the one aged 5 are males, the others are females. They all live with her and only four of them go to primary school.

Vicenta has been engaged in buy milk for eight years, processing it to then selling cheese. She does so twice a day every day, as she buys milk in the mornings as well as in the evenings. She obtains cream, curd and cottage cheese, and she sells most of them in the state capital, thus having to travel for around a hundred kilometers. When she is out selling her products it’s the girls who have to process milk, and they do it with much effort as they are not yet strong enough; she has to have them do it because it would be hard if the activity stopped for a day, as this is their only source of income.

The loan she is requesting to Fundación Campo will be used to buy bowls to produce curd, and moreover to buy beds and bed clothing to furnish her children’s bedrooms.

She say that what she wants the most is to see her children grow up, and for them to remember she has striven so that food would never lack from their table; it does not matter to her that they study, but she wants them to be good people and for them to have a decent house to live in in the future.
