A loan of $600 helped to buy beans, sugar, rice, and other basic products.

Bertha's story

Bertha is 43 years old, married, and has five children. She has been working in business for the last year. Before that, she was dedicated to looking after her family.

She sells corn which is grown by her family. Therefore, part of their crop is destined for sale, and the other part is consumed by the family. The loan Bertha is asking for from Fundacion Campo will be used to buy beans, sugar, rice, and other basic food products that her customers are asking for. Right now Bertha only sells corn, but she wants to open a small store where she can sell basic products in order to have more income for her family.
