Evilio, 63, is married and has 3 children. He learned farming from his father, starting when he was only 5 years old.
Evilio is applying for a Fundacion Campo loan that he will use to buy the supplies he needs--seeds for jute and maize, fertilizers, pesticides, etc--for his farming business. He will plant 14,000 square meters of jute and 7,000 square meters of maize. Evilio's maize crop is large enough to feed his family and he will sell the jute crop to generate a good cash income. For the future, he wants to build a house of his own so that his children can live more comfortably.
Evilio tiene 63 años de edad, esta casado y tiene 3 hijos. Desde la edad de los 5 años su padre le enseño a trabajar en la agricultura.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar semilla de yute, semilla de maíz, fertilizantes, pesticidas y herbicidas para sembrar 14,000 metros cuadrados de yute y 7,000 metros cuadrados de maíz. Con la cosecha de maíz asegurara la alimentación de la familia y la cosecha de yute le servirá para venderla de la cual obtiene buenas ganancias. Desea construir su propia casa para que sus hijos estén más cómodos.
