A loan of $200 helped to buy two bags of flour, 50 pounds of sugar, a case of shortening, and a gallon of cooking oil.


Carolina Elizabeth's story

Carolina lives with her partner and their two small children, who are five and three years old. She has been making bread for the past twelve years; her mother had this business in her house. Six months ago she asked her mother to give her the opportunity to start her own business using her mother’s equipment, so in the afternoons she works making donuts, which is her business.

Carolina buys the ingredients to make the bread along with her mother, since she buys little because she is just starting out. To go to the place where they buy the ingredients, they take a bus that takes an hour to get there.

She is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo to buy two bags of flour, 50 pounds of sugar, a case of shortening, and a gallon of cooking oil. This way she will get the ingredients she needs for making her bread and she will be able to increase demand, obtain better earnings, and improve the quality of life for her children.

Carolina’s dream is to buy her own oven, because she uses her mother’s, and to open her own bread shop. She also wishes to build her own house with brick because the one she currently lives in is made from coconut tree fronds. She hopes to achieve her dreams through hard work and with the help of Fundación Campo.
