José Carlos
José, 62, is in a relationship and has a daughter. He has worked in agriculture since he was 16, which he learned from his grandparents. Before that he studied.

He needs to travel approximately two hours from his house to buy agricultural supplies.

The loan from Fundación Campo will buy fertilizer, pesticides, herbicides, sorghum and corn seed, it will pay for the rent of the land and pay for the labor to cultivate the 7,000 square meters.

By cultivating corn he ensures there will be food for his family. He will feed his cows the sorghum to produce milk and fatten them up to sell them.

His dream is to give his daughter an education to be a professional.

José tiene 62 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene una hija. Desde la edad de los 16 años se ha dedicado a trabajar en la agricultura; actividad que aprendió de sus abuelos. Antes solo se dedicaba a estudiar. Para comprar los insumos agrícolas debe desplazarse aproximadamente a dos horas de su casa.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar abono, fertilizantes, pesticidas, herbicidas, semilla de maicillo y maíz, pago de alquiler de la tierra y pago de mano de obra para cultivar 7,000 metros cuadrados. Al cultivar maíz, asegurara el alimento para su familia y con la siembra del maicillo alimentara sus vacas para que produzcan leche y se engorden para venderlas. Su sueño es brindarle el estudio a su hija para que sea una profesional.
