Willian Napoleón
Willian is 25 years old, married and has a son. He has been a farmer since he was ten years old and learned this from his father. He also works with some animals and oxen. He gets up at 4:00 am and milks a cow and yoke up the oxen. He has a cup of coffee and then goes to the fields where he has his crops. It takes him an hour to get there. There he works for eight hours and returns home to feed his oxen. He says that he is very grateful to his father because he taught him how to work. He walks about 10 minutes from his house to where he takes the bus to make his one and a half hour trip.

He is asking for this loan through Fundación Campo, so he can buy eight sacks of fertilizer, a bag of seeds, two gallons of herbicide, two liters of pesticides, and pay for labor to plant corn. He already has farmland but not the money to buy supplies and the winter has already started and he needs money with which to plant so that he will have an abundant harvest. This is the only thing he does to feed his family. He hopes to have income to save up and build a house of his own because he is living with his parents.

Él camina aproximadamente 10 minutos de su casa hasta el lugar en donde aborda un camión que hace su recorrido de una hora a hora y media.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 8 sacos de fertilizantes, una bolsa de semilla, dos galones de herbicidas, dos litros de pesticidas y para pago de mano de obra para sembrar maíz. Él ya tiene el terreno para cultivar, pero no el dinero para comprar los insumos y el invierno ya comenzó y necesita el dinero para empezar a sembrar y que su cosecha sea abundante, ya que es a lo único que se dedica y de ahí obtiene el alimento para su familia. Espera recibir ingresos para ahorrar y construir su propia casa, debido a que esta viviendo con sus padres.
