José Cirilo
29-year old José has a partner and a son. He earns his living from growing maize, beans, and sorghum. His father taught him how to work the land; as a young boy he worked alongside his father and siblings. When he grew up, he decided to emigrate to another country where he lived for five years. While there he learned to be a very good bricklayer, and he has done work in the community. He is highly recommended by his employers.

José buys the materials he needs in the nearest town, located about five kilometres from his house. As transportation is scarce, he has to travel in a private vehicle which makes the journey very expensive.

The loan he is seeking from Fundación Campo is to pay the people who helped him with the harvest and to store the grain until he can get it to his house. His principal need is to gather the harvest more quickly and thus save time, and to have an easier means of transporting it. His life would then be much improved and he could devote more time to working on his house.

In the future José hopes to have a good harvest and be able to store his crops more safely in a granary in his own home. He wants to continue working as a farmer and as a bricklayer.
