A loan of $500 helped to buy merchandise for the store, to prepare the land for planting corn, and to pay for rent and labor.


María Del Rosario's story

María is 54 years old, married and has two children. She lives with her life partner, who is a farmer, and a granddaughter who is studying. She was responsible for managing her own store for five years; but her life partner got sick and she had to shut down her store.

The loan she is applying to Fundación Campo for, is to buy merchandise for the store so that she can open it again -- not in her house, but by the side of the main road -- to prepare the land for planting corn with an irrigation system, and to pay for rent and labor. In this way, she will ensure food for her family.
