A loan of $1,500 helped to buy cables and lamps, and to pay for the labor involved in installing electricity.

Vírginia Del Carmen's story

Virginia is 44 years old and married with four children. She has been living with her husband and kids in a rented home for eighteen years. She is a very hard worker. She sells cosmetics and lottery for a living, and this is a very good source of income for her. Her dream is to see her house finally finished, but because of the high cost of living she has not been able to finish building it, which is why they have to rent and live exposed to anything that might happen to her and her family at their current home.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to purchase cables and lamps and to pay for having electricity installed. Her father has given her a piece of land for her to live on and her house has already been built, but it still needs electrical power. This loan will allow her to install it by enabling her to purchase all of the materials she needs at once so that she can get them at a better price. Plus she will have enough cash available to pay the installers.
