José Jorge
José is 54 years old, married and has three children; two sons aged 23 and 19 and a daughter aged 20. They all live together. Since he was 10, José has worked in agriculture. His parents taught him to grow corn and sorghum, among other crops. José could not go to school because it was located far from where he lived, so he worked full time in agriculture.

With the loan he is requesting at Fundación Campo, he will clean and cultivate the fields, and buy supplies. He will also buy two calves that he will feed with fodder and husks from the previous season. In this way, he will not waste this feed and will prepare his land for another season.

José tiene 54 años de edad, esta casado y tiene tres hijos. Vive con su esposa y sus tres hijos; dos varones de 23 y 19 años de edad y una mujer de 20 años de edad. Desde la edad de los 10 años se dedica a la agricultura; debido a que sus padres le enseñaron a sembrar maíz, maicillo, etc. José no asistió a la escuela, ya que esta quedaba muy lejos de su casa, por lo que se dedicaba de tiempo completo a los trabajos agrícolas.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para limpiar, comprar insumos para cultivar y la otra parte para comprar un par de terneros los que alimentara con sácate y tuza de la cosecha pasada. Así, aprovecha este alimento y no lo perderá y empezara a preparar el terreno para su otra cosecha.
