María Dora
María is 42. She wasn't able to go to school for financial reasons and because she didn't have anyone to help her study, so she decided to set up a small shop. She gained experience in sales by helping out in her aunt's shop. Her son works in agriculture. She has 25 years' experience selling everyday groceries. Her business makes money and, with the profits she makes, she has managed to build her small house. She has someone who helps out in her business if she's not there for some reason, and she works practically all day as the business is in her home.

She is asking for a loan through CrediCampo to buy 5 sacks of beans, 15 hundred-weight of maize and 2 hundred-weight of rice. In the future, she wants to have basic produce to sell to people in her community since currently transport is quite feasible so she can move goods to her house, whereas in the winter it is very difficult.

Ella adquirió experiencia, cuando le ayudaba a vender a su tía, que tenía tienda, el hijo que ella tiene se dedica al trabajo de la agricultura.

Ella tiene 25 años de experiencia, en la venta de artículos de la canasta básica, y le es rentable ya que atreves de las ganancias que ella obtiene ha logrado construir su casita. Dispone de una persona quien le ayuda a vender en su negocio cuando por algún atraso ella no está, y trabaja prácticamente todo el día ya que su negocio lo tiene en su casa.

El préstamo que está solicitando a CREDICAMPO, es para comprar 5 sacos de frijoles y 15 quintales de maíz y 2 quintales de arroz.
