Jaime is 45 years old, married, and has two children. He has made a living for four years in the administration of his own store together with his wife. Before, he made a living working in agriculture which he learned from his father and older brothers. To buy merchandise he takes a pick-up truck to the city.
He is asking for this loan from Fundación Campo to buy dairy products, because he doesn't have any in his store and his customers are asking for them. By doing this he will keep his store well-stocked and his customers happy. With his earnings, Jaime hopes to continue to invest in his business in order to maintain a stable income and support the higher education of his children.
