Eva is 37 years old and single. She has been farming for several years since she learned this trade from her parents. Eva works with her brother and they wake up at 4:00 A.M. so that they can get ready and head toward the plot of land where they grow corn. Prior to that they must milk the cows so that they can sell whatever is produced.

The loan she is requesting from Fundación Campo will be used to buy seeds, compost, herbicides, pesticides, and other supplies. She will also pay the rent on her farmland. Her goal with this investment is to complete her crop cycle so that she can have corn for consumption and to sell to other people. Eva would like to acquire more dairy cows so that she can increase her earnings.
