Ana Gabriela
Ana is 23 years old and a single mother of a two-year-old daughter. She earns a living by performing household chores for people who request her services. Since her daughter was born, Ana and her partner have been separated, so she has had to tackle challenges by herself. She decided to move to the capital of the country so that she could earn a little bit more. Ana leaves her daughter in the care of her mother, but she travels every weekend so that she can be with her. The distance is 95 kilometers and she finds the frequent travel to be difficult.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo will be used to buy wood and metal sheets in order to install a roof on the house that she is building. Only the walls have been built using her own income. Without this loan, the task of installing a roof on her house would be almost impossible. Ana is looking to live more comfortably and securely with her daughter and mother. At the end of approximately three years, she dreams of having a whitewashed house with cement floors.
