The loan that María is seeking from CrediCampo is to buy three bags of maize because it stopped raining for over a month and they lost their maize crop. At the moment a bag of maize costs $56, but it may cost much more in the future because of the failed harvest. For this reason she is trying to avoid the problem. María also wishes to buy nine bundles of reeds to make bed mats and bamboo for the baskets.
Her dream is to see one of her sons continue his education and get a good job so that in the future he can buy a vehicle to take the merchandise to market. At the moment her husband has to pay for transportation of the mats and baskets.
