José, 62, is married and has three children. He is an enterprising man who saw the need to set up a mill in his community, as there was no mill at the time. Ten years ago, he also decided to grow basic grain crops. He will use the loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo to pay the rent on the land where he grows corn and maicillo to feed his family and sell to others. He expects this investment to produce part of his family's food and to create the opportunity to have additional income from selling food to others.
