Antonia's story

Antonia is 34 years old. She has a partner and two children. She looks after some of her nephews and takes care of the household chores while her partner makes a living as a driver.

Antonia is applying for a loan from "Fundación Campo" in order to apply for a new driving licence and medallion so that her partner can continue his work as a driver without any hassles. Without the necessary paperwork, he cannot work and the family will not have an income to cover household costs. Having the documents will also allow him to work without fear that he will be stopped and fined by the police for not having his paperwork in order. Antonia's plans for the future include starting up her own business, for her husband to have his own vehicle and to buy a house.
