Mirna Antonia
Mirnia is forty-six years old, and is married with four children, two girls and two boys. Two of her children study at the university, one is in high school, and the other is in middle school. She has participated in a food festival for five months, selling stuffed corn tortillas, corn paste drinks, fried dumplings, fried cassava, and ripe stuffed plantains, among other items. To buy the ingredients that she needs to prepare her foods for sale, she travels once a month to the city, which is thirty kilometers away.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundacion Campo is to buy a canopy, and to use the remaining funds to buy ingredients to make the foods she sells. With this investment, she will be able to offer a better service to her customers, since the canopy will protect them from the rain and sun. Her goal is to set up a food stall close to her house. At the moment, she only participates in the food festival to generate a better income for her family.
