Neftali is 47 years old, married, and he has a son. Neftali started out in agriculture when he was 12 years old. He learned the business from his father, who, for the sake of teaching his son to work, did not let Neftali go to school. Therefore Neftali has 35 years' experience as an agriculturist, and he loves what he does.

Neftali has requested a loan from Fundacion Campo (Kiva Field Partner) to invest in the 10500 square meters of land where he cultivates corn and beans. The region where Neftali lives is very rural so transportation is very limited. Neftali's challenge is transporting all of the materials to his land. With the help of this loan Neftali has been able to purchase all of the materials he needs all at once, obtaining a better price and saving on the cost of making several trips.

In the future Neftali would like to plant in larger quantities to increase his harvests for sale.

Neftali tiene 47 años, es casado y tiene un hijo. Neftali comenzo a dedicarse a la agricultura desde los 12 años. Dicho oficio lo aprendio de su padre, quien con el afan de enseñarle a su hijo a trabajar no le permitio a Neftali ir a la escuela. Por ende Neftali tiene 35 años de experiencia como agricultor, y le gusta lo que él hace.

Neftali ha pedido un préstamo a Fundacion Campo para 10,500 metros cuadrados de tierra, donde el cultiva maiz y frijol. Debido a que la zona donde vive y cultiva Neftali es muy rural, el transporte es muy escaso y a Neftali se le dificulta llevar todos los insumos a su cultivo. Con la ayuda del préstamo Neftali ha podido comprar todo los insumos que necesita de una sola ves, adquiriendolos a mejor precio y ahorrandose el costo de tener que hacer varios viajes.

En un futuro Neftali quisiera poder sembrar una mayor cantidad, y poder obtener mayores cosechas para la venta.
