Olimpia Arely
Olimpia is a young woman of 25 years old. She studied until the first year of high school, but had to drop out the school because of her pregnancy. She has two children of different fathers due to the failure of her previous relations. For the last two years she has been in a relationship with another person.

Olimpia works as an employee of a clothing distributor of the area. She has dedicated to this activity for over five years. The reason why she took this job, located three kilometers away from her house, was the need of supporting her two children. She works from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The loan requested to CrediCampo will be used to repair the roof of her house. She feels insecure having her family there, and the loan will give her the enough capital to buy the materials she needs to repair her house.

She hopes that her new marriage will work, and that she’ll be able to repair her house. She also hopes that her children will be able to finish their basic education, so they can continue studying all the way to college and become professionals.
