A loan of $700 helped to pay off her house.


Deysi Esperanza's story

Deysi is 34 years old, married and has three children, one nine years old and a set of four year old twins. She has been selling fish since she got married but she used to be a merchant with her mother. She gets up at 4:00 am so that she can leave early to make her sales. She prepares her husband’s and children’s breakfasts, prepares her oldest son for school, and takes her twins to her mother in law while she goes out to sell. In order to buy her fish, she needs to board a pickup truck that takes her to the city where she can board the bus to the beach.

She is asking for a loan through Fundación Campo so that she can make the final payment on her house that she bought. She will use the rest of the money to buy dried fish to sell. This will allow her to finish paying off her house, get the deed, and then feel certain that the house is hers and she will then be able to buy more fish. She has to travel several times but doesn’t have enough money to buy for the whole month.

She can save the money she pays for the trips because she wants her children to graduate from university and add onto her house.
