Señora Bernarda is 38 years old, married, and has four children between the ages of two and ten years old. Along with her husband she makes a living by raising laying hens, which she has done for two years. She began with a few hens, thus gaining experience; now she has 200 hens and hopes to have more. She acquires the supplies for her hens in the nearest town which is an hour and a half away by bus or her own car. She must travel often in search of the supplies and her financial income limits her from buying greater quantities.

The loan that Bernarda is requesting from Fundación Campo is for buying feed, vitamins, and antibiotics in large quantities; buying an additional 100 hens; and to better adjust the structure where she manages her hens. With the loan she will have more liquidity to manage her business to have large quantities of the supplies she needs and to avoid traveling so much to the city, thus dedicating more time to caring for her children.

La señora Bernarda tiene 38 años de edad, es casada y tiene cuatro hijos que están entre las edades de dos y diez años de edad. Ella junto a su esposo se dedica a la crianza de gallinas ponedoras, desde hace dos años. Inicio con pocas gallinas, así fue adquiriendo experiencia; actualmente posee 200 gallinas y pretende poseer más.

Ella adquiere los insumos para sus gallinas en la ciudad más cercana, que esta a una hora y media en autobús o en vehiculo particular, debe viajar bien seguido en busca de los insumos, y sus ingresos económicos lo limitan para comprar en cantidades mayores.

El préstamo que esta solicitando Bernarda a Fundación Campo, es para comprar concentrado, vitaminas, antibióticos en grandes cantidades, comprara 100 pollos más y si le ajusta mejorara la estructura en donde maneja sus gallinas.

Con el préstamo tendrá más liquidez, para manejar su negocio al poseer en grandes cantidades los insumos que necesita y evitara viajar tanto a la ciudad, dedicando más tiempo al cuidado de sus hijos.
