María Del Carmen's story

María is forty-eight years old, has five children, and her life partner lives in another country. For twenty-six years, she has been dedicating herself to the making and selling of empanadas and tortillas. She leaves in the morning to sell the empanadas by walking door to door in the area where she lives. She sells the tortillas from her home. She learned this business through her own initiative after realizing the need to have an income for her family.

The loan that she is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy corn, plantains, and other ingredients for her business. Her intention is to make her business grow and to better the living conditions of her family.
