Rosa Marina's story

Rosa is 56 years old and has 2 children, but only lives with a daughter and her granddaughters. For approximately the last 6 years, she has been making and selling tortillas. She begins at 6:00 am and finishes at 2:30 pm. Rosa carries out this activity every day except Sunday.

The loan Rosa is soliciting through the Fundacion Campo is needed to buy 40 quintales (46 klgs. each) of corn, to be stored in 2 silos, and 2 quintales of dehydrated lime for cooking the corn, plus drinks. She is beginning to install a store in her house. In this manner, Rosa will be sure to have enough corn to guarantee that she will not have to halt tortilla making. Each day she uses 1 ½ arrobas (30 klgs. each) of corn.

At the same time, Rosa will buy supplies for starting her store, since she wants things to go very well in this new store.
