Pablo, 66, is married and has two children. For more than 50 years he has worked in agriculture, which he learned from his father. He gets up at 4 a.m. along with his wife and children to get ready to go to work on his 14,000-square-meter corn crop. They work all morning and in the afternoon his children go to school while Pablo does other tasks to support the household.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy manure, seed, pesticide, and herbicide, and to pay rent on his plot of land.

This way he'll be able to plant corn without any problems so he can earn the income to support his family and be able to buy some dairy cows to sell dairy products.

Pablo tiene 66 años de edad, es casado y tiene dos hijos. Desde hace más de 50 años se dedica a la agricultura; oficio que aprendió de su padre. Él se levanta a las 4:00 a.m. a prepararse junto a su esposa e hijos para irse a trabajar a los 14,000 metros cuadrados de su cultivo de maíz. Durante toda la mañana trabajan y en la tarde sus hijos se van para la escuela, mientras que Pablo se dedica a realizar otros quehaceres para llevar el alimento al hogar.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar abono, semilla, pesticidas, herbicidas y pago del alquiler del terreno. De esta manera, podrá sembrar sin problemas el maíz para recibir ingresos que le permitan llevar el alimento a su familia y poder comprar unas vacas lecheras para vender lácteos.
