A loan of $1,000 helped to buy materials and pay for labor costs required to build a coop for her chicken farm.


Blanca Aracely's story

Blanca is 36 years of age, widowed, and has two children. She has worked for six years making and selling tamales and bread. She learned this trade on her own initiative, following the death of her husband. To buy the ingredients she needs to prepare delicious tamales and bread, Blanca travels in a vehicle to a river, then crosses the river on a rope bridge, before taking another vehicle on the other side to the closest village.

Blanca has requested a loan from Fundación Campo to buy materials and pay for labor costs required to build a coop for her chicken farm. With this investment she hopes to improve her income, so that her children do not go without anything. She wants to open a store, establish her farm, and ensure that her children have access to education.
