A loan of $300 helped to buy 800 tiles to repair the roof of her home.

Estela's story

Estela is 50 years of age, married, and has three children. Two of her children live in the USA, and her youngest son is in the seventh grade. Estela is very happy with her family, which is united by its values and principles. Her husband works in a hardware store in the city, and gets up at 3:30 am to catch the bus. He comes home at 6 pm, and is very determined and hardworking.

At the age of 7 Estela started to learn how to weave and make rope. She helped her parents, and earned a living for herself alongside her family. When she turned 27 she started to carry out domestic work, and got married.

Estela has requested this loan from Fundación Campo to buy 800 tiles, as this will help her to make improvements to her house. She will repair the roof on her home, as the rainy season is fairly strong, and this will allow her family to be safer. Her dream is to set up a farm with chickens and laying hens, to continue working with the Foundation, and to always be able to support her family.
