José Rodolfo
Mr. José is 64 years old. He is married and has five children, out of which four live together with him and are attending school. He works in agriculture and countryside activities, a line of work he learned from his father and in which he has been working for several years. He wakes up at 4:00 am to work together with his family in a 14,000 square meters field that is located three kilometers away from their house. In the afternoon and evening he works as a day laborer in a farm until 9:00 pm.

In order to buy the supplies he needs, he must travel to a municipality. To get there, he must walk five kilometers to the main road and then take a bus. The loan he is requesting at Fundación Campo, is to buy three milk cows. With this investment, he plans to sell the milk, curd and cream and obtain better income for his family.

His wish is to build his house with bricks, because the one he has is made of wattle and daub and has many cracks that let the water come in.
