José Carmen
José, 45, lives with his wife and has three children. He has made a living in agriculture from a very young age. In his youth, parents weren't worried about going to school. In his case it was more difficult because his father died when José was five years old and he grew up with his grandparents, with whom he learned agricultural work.

José says that when he got married he worked with more care and dedication for his family. He gets up at 4:30 a.m. to let the young bulls out. Then he has a cup of coffee to go out to work, which is 30 minutes away. He works for seven hours, then returns home.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy two young bulls to graze because there is stubble remaining from the harvest.

His goals are to give his children an education so they're academically prepared and to build his house of brick, because the one he has now is of bamboo.

Don José, tiene 45 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene tres hijos. Se dedica a la agricultura desde muy joven; en su época los padres no se preocupaban porque fuera a la escuela y en su caso fue más difícil, pues su padre murió cuando él tenía cinco años de edad y se creció con sus abuelos y fue con ellos que aprendió la agricultura. Cuando se caso nos comenta don José que trabajo con más esmero y dedicación para su familia. Se levanta a las 4:30 a.m. a dejar unas novillas, luego se toma una taza de café para irse a su trabajo que esta a treinta minutos, trabaja a siete horas y luego regresa a su casa.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar dos toretes para repasto ya que le queda el rastrojo de la cosecha. Su propósito, es brindar a sus hijos el estudio para que se preparen académicamente y construir su casa de ladrillo, debido a que la que tiene es de bahareque.
