Lázaro
Lazaro is 60 years old and has three children. She works in agriculture. She learned about this field from her father, who taught her from childhood. She has made a living working the fields, cultivating corn and beans since she was very young. Although she is a woman, she always carried out the same tasks as a man, but today she cannot work like she used to because of her age. Therefore, her children have taken responsibility for the work. They work very hard in order to bring the product home.

She buys the materials she needs in the closest town, a kilometer away from her house, and she uses a rented vehicle to move them.

She is applying for a loan from Fundación Campo to pay the people who will help her with the harvest and remove the husks so the corn can be taken to her house. In this way, she will have savings in her pocket because the harvest will take less time.

Her principal need is to gather the harvest more quickly and therefore save time processing the corn. It will also be easier to move the product. Her life will improve because she will be able to obtain savings by moving and organizing her harvest smoothly.

In the future, she hopes to have her harvest processed in her home. This will give her greater security in her harvest. She wants to continue working in agriculture alongside her children, so that they can learn about the field like she did.
