Santos's story

Santos is 40 years old. She did not have the opportunity to attend school because of the circumstances of her life. She is a single mother with three children who are studying in school. Her situation as a single mother has not prevented her from working hard in order to support her children.

This is why she has opened a little café in the community school this year, in addition to the business that she has had in her house all of her life; having to raise her children on her own is what motivated Santos to do the work that she does. The school where she has her little café is about 500 meters from her house, and she pays someone to help her in the business. Her work schedule is from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The loan that she is requesting from CrediCampo will be invested in the purchase of beverages, snacks, meat, vegetables, frozen treats, etc. With this, she will increase her sales and have more income; and accomplish her goal of being able to do the work that she likes.

Santos’ goal is to continue with the café and make it more profitable, and to have better financial stability so that her children will have help completing their studies.
