Cleotilde
Don Cleotilde is a 61-year old man, married and father of two children. He works on agriculture since he was very young, and has a great experience and motivation in what he does. He learned with his father and didn't study, as at that time what parents wanted was for their children to learn a job. In order to buy farming inputs, he needs to go to the city, which is one and a half hour away by car or bus. Also, given that there's not direct transportation to where he lives, he needs to use another vehicle to take home all those inputs.

He will use the loan requested to Fundación Campo to repair the mill to cut up forage. The engine is damaged and he needs to repair it so that he can continue to work as a miller providing services to people who hire him. Thanks to this, he will receive an extra income to support his family, especially at a time when money is difficult to earn and they need to make a lot of sacrifices. His biggest dream is to provide his family with what he couldn't enjoy when he was young: the possibility of studying and other things to improve their lives.
