José Manuel
José is 21 years old. He has two children with his life partner. Approximately five years ago, he began to make a living raising bulls on pasture, a trade he learned from his father since he was not able to study. This is José's single source of income from which to support his family. To buy the bulls he raises, José travels by truck to the market 45 minutes away, where animals are sold.

He is requesting this loan from Fundación Campo in order to buy two bulls to fatten in his pastures and later sell. With this investment, he will be able to continue his business and ensure an income to support his family. José's wish, is to save enough money to build a brick house, because right now he does not own the house he lives in.
