Saúl Alberto
Saul is 61 years old. He is married and has four children (two women and two men). He is dedicated to farming and raising cattle. He is a pensioner, since he worked as a security guard for 15 years.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundacion Campo is to buy wood, tile, laminate and medicines for a treatment his father has. The materials will be used to repair the roof of his house. It is in very bad condition and the rainy season has already started and water has leaked, causing discomfort for his family, as well as illness. Additionally, he will use the money to acquire medicines for his father's treatment. His wish is to continue working in agriculture, planting maize, caring for his oxen which serve him by carrying water, to repair his house and keep covering his father's treatment.
