Natanael is 34 years old and has three children. He learned how to farm from his father as a very young child. He has been working the land since then, in spite of his missing his right hand. This doesn't stop him from working and wanting to improve himself more and more.
He will use the loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo to buy foliar and soil fertilizers and pay for labor for his watermelon crops. He will later plant corn. His goal is for his family not to want for anything and for his three children to be able to finish school and follow their dreams.
Natanael tiene 34 años de edad, tiene tres hijos. Desde muy pequeño junto a su padre aprendió el trabajo agrícola, cultivando la tierra a pesar que le falta la mano derecha ese no es impedimento para trabajar y querer superarse cada día más.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar foliares, fertilizantes y pago de mano de obra para su cultivo de sandia y posteriormente sembrara maíz. Lo que busca él, es que a su familia no le falte nada y que sus tres hijos puedan terminar sus estudios y que cumplan sus sueños.
