Fautino, age 49, lives with his wife and their three children. He has worked in agriculture ever since he was ten years old. It was his mother who taught him because his father died when he was very little. Therefore, it fell to his mother and him to work to support the family.

He gets up very early, at 4:00 a.m., to have a cup of coffee and then leave at 5:00 a.m. He gets to work at 6:00 a.m. because he walks for an hour. He does this wholeheartedly so that his children flourish. He buys the supplies for his work in a city. He gets on a bus for 45 minutes, then he gets on another bus for another 45 minutes.

The loan he is requesting from the Fundación Campo is to buy three sacks of fertilizer, to buy herbicides, and to pay for labor. With this investment he will be able to have what is needed to work with his crops. He will have the supplies he needs on hand in order for his harvest to be productive.

His wish is to work in order to save and to buy a place to build a house for his children. The place where they live is very small, and he wants each one of his children to have a place to live.

Don Fautino tiene 49 años de edad, vive con su esposa y sus tres hijos. Desde que tenia 10 años, se dedica a la agricultura, fue su mamá quien le enseño, debido a que su papá se murió cuando él estaba muy pequeño; por lo que junto a su mamá les toco trabajar para sostener a la familia. Se levanta muy temprano para trabajar a las 4:00 a.m. a tomarse su taza de café y salir a las 5:00 a.m. para llegar al trabajo a las 6:00 a.m. debido a que camina a pie una hora, él lo hace con todo el corazón para que sus hijos se desarrollen. Los insumos para su trabajo los compra en una ciudad, aborda un autobús que tarda unos cuarenta y cinco minutos, luego aborda otro autobús que tarda otros cuarenta y cinco minutos.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar tres sacos de fertilizantes, herbicidas y para pago de mano de obra. Con la inversión podrá suplir la necesidad de realizar sus cultivos, pues tendrá a la mano los insumos que necesita para que su cosecha sea productiva. Su deseo es trabajar, para ahorrar y comprar a sus hijos un lugar para construir su casa, ya que donde viven es muy pequeño y lo que quiere es cada uno de sus hijos tenga un lugar donde vivir.
