She buys supplies in the nearest town which is about 3 kilometers from home to be able to buy the supplies and food for her house. In addition, she and her husband buy animals to fatten up but sometimes she doesn’t do it because of the distance which sometimes is quite far from the places where she buys and sells her products.
The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to start planting 17,000 square meters of corn and to care for her animals in order to sell them.
At the moment, she does not have enough money to start planting and the planting season is approaching. She hopes to do well and to have a good crop yield of corn to earn higher family income and what’s left over use as cattle feed wince they produce a product: milk.
Compra los insumo en el pueblo mas cercano que esta a unos 3 kilometros de su casa. Para poder comprar los insumos y alimentos para su casa, a demás de eso junto con su esposo compran animales para engordarlos pero algunas veces ella no lo puede hacer por la distancia que aveces son muy retiradas las zonas donde compra y vende sus productos.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para iniciar con la siembra de 17,000 metros cuadrados de maíz y el mantenimiento de los animales para venderlos.
En estos momentos, no le alcanza el dinero para comenzar la siembra; ya que se acerca la época de siembra. Espera que le vaya bien obteniendo una buena cantidad de maíz y tener un mayor ingreso para su familia y del rastrojo que quede para alimentar al ganado que tiene y que le dan un producto que es la leche.
