Mauro Adán
Mauro is 64 years old, married and has four children. He has worked a lot his whole life and has been able to remain as strong as a young person. He has been working with agriculture and cattle since he was a kid, taught by his parents. He could not attend school because of the lack of money. The piece of land where he works is located on a hilltop, so he must ride his horse on steep roads in order to go to work.

Mauro is requesting a loan to Fundación Campo to buy six bags of fertilizer, fifty pounds of corn seeds and other supplies needed to grow corn in a 14,000 m2 piece of land. He lives in a remote area, so it is difficult for him to travel on a frequent basis to buy agricultural supplies. Mauro’s dream is to build a brick house, since the one where he lives now is made of adobe. This way, he and his family will have a safer place to live in.

Mauro tiene 64 años de edad, es casado y tiene cuatro hijos. Toda su vida a trabajo mucho y se ha conservado con una gran fortaleza de joven. Él a trabajado en el cuido de ganado y en la agricultura desde que era un niño; sus padres le enseñaron, ya que no tuvo la oportunidad de estudiar debido a su situación económica. Para llegar al terreno en donde tiene sus cultivos, él se traslada en su caballo por calles con pendientes muy altas ya que esta cerca de un cerro.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 6 sacos de fertilizantes, 50 libras de semilla de maíz, entre otros insumos para cultivar 14,000 metros cuadrados de maíz. Como él vive en una zona con difícil acceso, se le complica el estar viajando tan seguido en busca de los insumos agrícolas. Su sueño es construir una casa de ladrillo ya que en la que vive es de adobe para vivir más seguro junto a su familia.
