Silvino
Don Silvino, 54, is married and has two children. For 42 years, he has made a living growing sugar cane and maize, work that his father starting teaching him to do when he was just 12 years old. He goes by cart, drawn by oxen, to the nearest town to buy the supplies that he needs, a trip that takes an hour-and-a-half, there and back.

Don Silvino will use this Fundacion Campo loan to pay for the farm labor--10 workers to help with his maize crop and three with his cane crop--and the supplies--fertilizers, herbicides, etc.--that he needs for his farming business.

The investment will cover the costs of preparing his fields and paying workers so that he can work faster and bring in a better crop. His goal is to provide his family with a better living. For the future, he wants to grow more maize and sugar cane so that he can improve his house.
