Juan Bautista
Juan, 36, is married and has five children. He lives with his wife and five children. As a child, his parents taught him to work hard in agriculture and livestock farming, as well, he learned bricklaying. At 20 years of age he learned how to be a tailor, which is his job today. He makes pants, blouses, shirts and other articles of clothing. He hasn't left farming behind as he continues at a smaller scale.
The loan he is requesting from Fundacion Campo is to buy two cows and an industrial sewing machine to make private school uniforms and any other work that comes his way from others. He'll use the small parcel of land he owns to lead the cows to pasture as well as satisfy the demand for tailored clothing. His dream is to own a place for his tailor shop and buy a car, as he has to move around to faraway areas.

A los 20 años de edad, aprendió el oficio de sastre y es en esa labor que trabaja hoy en día. Confecciona pantalones, blusas, camisas, entre otras prendas más. Sin dejar de lado la agricultura y la ganadería, siempre trabaja en este rubro pero en pequeña escala.


El préstamo que esta solicitando Fundacion Campo, es para comprar dos vacas y una maquina industrial, para elaborar los uniformes escolares de unas escuelas públicas y demás trabajo que le llega de otras personas.
