Santos Porfirío
Santos is 57 years old, married, and has three children. He is a farmer and raises livestock. He has also been the pastor of a church for 15 years. He learned the farm work from his father when he was very young.

He will use the money from the loan he is requesting through Fundación Campo to buy cows and grass to feed them. This investment will secure a source of income for the family because he will sell these animals and continue his work. He will also keep up his corn farming and wants to raise sesame and save up to buy his own farmland.
