Dagoberto
Dagoberto, age 39, is in a relationship and has two children. He started working the land when he was 12 years old. He helped his parents grow basic grains and care for the livestock.

Buying supplies is an odyssey. The city where he buys them is two hours, walking on foot, from his house. Transportation is scarce, and in order to transport the supplies he uses a cart. Therefore, he arrives at his house at night. The trip is pretty long.

The loan that he is requesting from the Fundación Campo is to buy compost and fertilizers and to pay for the labor to plant. This way he will get an abundant harvest that will allow him to feed his family. He will sell the other part of the harvest, and he will get income for the other household expenses.

Dagoberto tiene 39 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene dos hijos. Desde los 12 años de edad, comenzó a trabajar en la tierra, le ayudaba a su padre a sembrar granos básicos y al cuido de ganado. Para comprar los insumos es una odisea, la ciudad en donde los compra esta a dos horas de su casa caminando a pie; porque el transporte es escaso y para trasladar los insumos lo hace en una carreta por eso ya llega a su casa en la noche, el viaje es bastante largo.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar abono, fertilizantes y pago de mano de obra para sembrar. Así, obtendrá una cosecha abundante que le permita alimentara su familia y otra parte para venderla y obtener ingresos para los demás gastos del hogar.
