Ana Cecilia's story

Ana, 24 years old, is a single mother who studied up to middle school. She has to work to sustain herself and her 3-year-old son. The father refuses to recognize them. She rises at 5:00 am to carry out her agricultural activities.

Ana raises corn. She walks 2 klm to arrive at the parcels where she sows her crops. In addition, she cares for her livestock (cows), a skill that she learned from her parents.

The loan Ana solicits from Fundacion Campo is for purchasing 2 cows currently for sale, to produce milk to sell to her friends and residents of the areas surrounding her home, for additional income.

Ana's plans for the future are to purchase more cows in order to be able to produce more milk and make milk products (cheeses, cream, etc.) to sell.
