Víctor Manuel
Víctor, 29, has a spouse and two children. He’s worked in agriculture since childhood; his father taught him. The supplies he needs for his productive activities and for his home he gets in a city that’s 35 kilometers from his house; it takes two-and-a-half hours by bus because transport is quite scarce.

The loan he’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy four sacks of corn seeds, 24 quintals of manure, fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide. With this investment he will buy all the supplies at the same time so he won’t have to make several trips that are so difficult to do because of the transportation situation where he lives. He will be able to apply them in a timely fashion and in the right amounts so that his crop yields will be good.

He hopes his children will complete their schooling, to buy a piece of land and to continue working in agriculture focusing for the most part on vegetables and fruit taking advantage of the zone he lives in which is propitious for these types of crops.

Víctor tiene 29 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene dos hijos. Se dedica a la agricultura desde su niñez; fue su padre quien le enseño. Los insumos que necesita para sus actividades productivas y para el hogar las adquiere en una ciudad que esta a 35 kilómetros de su casa; son dos horas y media en autobús, por que es bastante escaso el transporte.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 4 bolsas de semilla de maíz, 24 quintales de abono, fertilizantes, herbicidas y pesticidas. Con la inversión, comprara todos los insumos de una sola vez, ahorrándose tanto viaje y más con la dificultad del trasporte en el lugar en donde vive, los aplicara a tiempo y en las cantidades correctas para que le genere una buena cosecha. Su deseo es que sus hijos terminen de estudiar, comprar un terreno, seguir trabajando en la agricultura y con mayor enfoque en las hortalizas y cultivo de frutas, aprovechando que en la zona en donde vive permite este tipo de cultivos.
