Rosa Isabel's story

Rosa, 37, has lived with her life companion and their three children for the last five years. She does domestic chores and her husband works on his crops. She inherited the agricultural work from her parents since they live in a very productive zone. In addition to helping her husband with the agricultural activities, Rosa has been raising pigs and running a small grocery store at home for the last four years. With both businesses she’s remodeled her house since they used to live in a metal sheet house and now they built it with concrete blocks, the result of their hard work and thanks to having managed their business well.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy seeds, fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide and to pay labor costs. She will also buy three sacks of pig feed and basic staples like sugar, salt, rice, beans, soft-drinks and juices, among others to stock her store.

Now that the rainy season has returned, they want to plant corn that will be their food for the coming year. With the purchase of the pig feed she will finish fattening up the ones she has. Among her plans is to brick her house so that it will be more comfortable.
