Guadalupe's story

Guadalupe Sánchez is 62 years old. She is widowed and has 4 children; but none of them live with her as they are married. She sells appetizers for a living (such as enchiladas, cakes, yuca, and drinks among other products). She sells these in a school center of the city on foot. She has done this trade for many years and it was this way that she was able to provide schooling for her 4 children, 2 of whom went to the United States and provide her economic assistance. Today she no longer does this trade since her children went to the United states and left 2 grandchildren in her care.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo (Field Foundation) is to purchase 200 pieces of decorated ceramic, 10 bags of cement, materials for floor installation and payment for labor. For improvements in her housing she is changing the floor as much of it is damaged.

Among her future plans she is continue with the improvement of her housing. She wants to make a wall around the perimeter of her house, change the doors and fix the roof, always with the help from the loan from Fundación Campo.
