A loan of $500 helped to cancel her debt from purchasing tiles for the roof of her house.

María Ambrocia's story

María is a 37-year old woman, married and mother of five children. She makes a living cultivating tule (a material used to make backpacks, baskets, etc.), a job that she learned from her parents when she was a little girl.

She has bought tiles to repair the roof of her house, which is currently made of plastic and needs a few tiles to prevent it from being thrown out by the wind. She bought the tiles from a neighbor, but did not fully paid them and still owes 50% of the price. In order to cancel her debt, she is requesting a loan to Fundación Campo. Thanks to this investment, she will be able to improve her house, making it safer with tiles than with plastic, and her children will live in a safer place (during the winter, her house fills with water). Her dream is to improve her house and to install iron doors to replace the current ones, made with wood by her husband.
