Rafael Orlando
Rafael, 52, lives with his partner and three children. From a very young age he was taught by his grandfather to work in agriculture. This is because his father abandoned him and he was raised by his grandfather. His grandfather passed away when Rafael was 19 so he began working independently. At age 22 he got married and began his family. He buys farm supplies in a place four kilometers from his house so he has to hire a vehicle to transport the goods back home. He also hires a cart to take the supplies to his farmland which is a kilometer away from home.

The loan he is requesting through Fundación Campo is to buy fertilizers and seeds to plant 14,000 meters of corn. With this loan he wants to improve his family's quality of live, since he will have a better income and can renovate part of the house.
