Abel Ulises
Abel is 56 years old, married, with five children. He is a farmer and also raises milk cows. His father taught him this trade when he was young. In spite of a weak leg, this does not stop him from working hard. He gets up at 4:30am in order to milk his cows along with his wife and children. Later he goes out with his wife to work on the 14,000 square meters of land that is planted in corn. Meanwhile, his children go to school.
This loan, which is being requested from the Countryside Foundation, will be used to buy three milk cows. This will give him a greater production of milk. He will have more milk to sell and will earn more income. This will allow him to build a proper house, as the house where his family lives is deteriorating. There are leaks and it is in bad condition.

Abel tiene 56 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene cinco hijos. Él se dedica a la agricultura y a la crianza de vacas lecheras desde hace varios años; su padre fue quien le enseño. A pesar de estar lisiado de un pie; eso no le impide trabajar muy fuerte, se levanta a las 4:30 a.m. a ordeñar sus vacas junto a su esposa y a sus hijos. Luego se va junto a su esposa a trabajar en los 14,000 metros cuadrados de cultivo de maíz y sus hijos se van para la escuela.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar tres vacas lecheras. Así tendrá más producción de leche, por lo que podrá disponer de más leche para la venta y obtener más ingresos económicos que le permitan construir una casa digna; ya que en donde vive esta muy deteriorada ya que se moja y esta en malas condiciones.
