Miguel is 48 years old, is divorced and has four children. All his life, he has worked cultivating basic grains, which he learned from his father who also worked in agriculture.
The loan that he is asking for from Fundación Campo is to purchase pesticides, fertilizers, and everything else that is necessary to have a good harvest of corn. By preparing well for the harvest, he will have more production and more sales, so that his sales increase and cover the necessities for his home. He wants to improve the floor, ceiling and walls of his house and buy a cow in order to sell its milk and its derivatives.
