Anita De Jesús's story

Anita, 30, has a spouse and two children. She does domestic chores and tends to her house because she wants to have a clean house and good living conditions so her family can have adequate conditions. She takes in laundry and ironing and does other domestic chores that generate income to cover household expenses; she’s been working doing domestic chores since she was 12-years-old. She learned this occupation from her mother and since then she’s been working for 18 years. She’s now employed in a private home and has been working there for two years doing domestic chore

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy 400 concrete blocks, 18 sacks of cement, 1-1/2 quintal of rebar, 3/8 quintal of smooth iron, 12 5-meter beams, 12 3-meter beams, 8 metal sheets and two pounds of nails to build a kitchen because the one she has now is made of mud and reeds and it has many problems in the rainy season.

Her living conditions will improve having a house in optimal conditions because the kitchen is currently in poor condition because the floor floods during the rainy season but she’ll use the loan to build the kitchen so her family will have better living conditions. Her two children who are 3 and 5 years of age depend on her.
