Orlando Emilio
Orlando, 50, is married and has two children. He has made a living in agriculture since he was very young because he didn't have the opportunity to study. He has always done agricultural labor and cared for animals.

When he got married he started working with more desire and greater effort to support his family. His father taught him to work and instilled in him that he should work and save to buy the things he needs. He plans to leave animals to his children so they will begin their lives independently.

To go out and buy the supplies he needs he has to walk for half an hour to get the bus. It takes forty minutes to get there and then he returns home. To transport the supplies, though, he has to pay for the services of a cart driver.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy four young bulls to make the most of the stubble that remains from the crop. This way he won't waste that pasture and he'll have animals he can sell in the future, and put the profit back into agriculture.

His biggest dream is to work and save so he can leave a house and a cow to each child when they marry, so they have a way to work.

Don Orlando, tiene 50 años de edad, es casado y tiene dos hijos. Se dedica a la agricultura desde muy joven; pues no tuvo la oportunidad de estudiar. Siempre se dedico a realizar labores agrícolas y al cuido de animales; cuando se caso empezó a trabajar con más ganas y con mayor esfuerzo para sostener a su familia. Su padre fue quien le enseño a trabajar, pues le inculco a que se debe trabajar y ahorrar para comprar las cosas que se necesitan y piensa en dejarles a sus hijos animales para que empiecen su vida de manera independiente.

Para salir a comprar los insumos que necesita, él debe caminar media hora para abordar el autobús, este tarda cuarenta minutos en llegar y luego regresa a su casa; pero para trasladar los insumos debe pagar una persona que le brinde el servicio de carretero.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar cuatro toretes para aprovechar el rastrojo que queda del cultivo. Así, él no desperdiciara ese pasto y tendrá animales que pueda venderlos en un futuro y con la ganancia trabajar en la agricultura. Su más grande sueño, es trabajar y ahorrar para dejarle a cada hijo una casa y una vaca para cuando se casen tengan como trabajar.
