Juana Alicia's story

Juana is 48, divorced, and the single mother of two children, ages 23 and 15. The oldest is about to graduate from college and the youngest attends a local school. From a young age, Juana has done the household chores. She married and then separated from her husband, who emigrated to the US. She kept striving and opened a tortilla stand in the neighborhood. She sells every day and has to grind two quintales of corn weekly to sell tortillas. She also continues to take care of and clean homes in the city. Her efforts and daily sacrifice have helped her daughters go to school.

She is using her savings to build a brick house so that her daughters can live more comfortably. She has applied to Fundación Campo for a loan to buy 126 bags of cement, to pay 28 workers $12.00 each to finish the wall, and to pay other expenses. She has already purchased sand, iron, and other building materials. This loan will let her finish the wall under construction and the major sections of the house. She will have a decent, comfortable place to live with her daughters.

She wants to strive each day to see her daughter finish college and have professional careers. She also dreams of adding a second story to her house.
