Jorge Alberto
Don Jorge is 50 and has two children that help him plant fields and milk the cows. He is a farmer, and he learned his trade from his father. He and his children wake up at 4 am. Since he is a single father, he makes breakfast and lunch while his kids milk the cows. Later they walk five kilometers to arrive at the fields where they plant their crops.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to purchase agricultural inputs to have a better harvest. Having a good yield will allow him to have higher income that will be used to purchase more cows and repair his home since it is made out of adobe and he wants to construct it with bricks.

Don Jorge tiene 50 años de edad, tiene dos hijos quienes le ayudan a sembrar y a ordeñar las vacas. Él se dedica a la agricultura, oficio que aprendió de su padre. Se levanta a las 4:00 a.m. junto a sus hijos a preparar el desayuno y el almuerzo, debido a que es padre soltero, mientras tanto sus hijos ordeñan las vacas. Luego se dirigen al terreno donde tienen sus cultivos y caminan unos cinco kilómetros para llegar ahí.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo es, para comprar insumos agrícolas, para obtener una buena cosecha. Al tener una buena cosecha, podrá recibir más ingresos que serán destinados a comprar más vacas y a reparar su casa ya que es de adobe y desea construirla de ladrillo.
