Kristian Amilcar
Kristian is 22 years old, is in a relationship, and has a son. As a small boy he learned to work in agriculture alongside his mother, since this was the only way to make a household income. He works all morning farming, and in the afternoon he sells sorbet to the community, because what he wants most is to provide for all of his son's needs. He plants his crops on the slopes of a hill, which makes the work more difficult.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy 6 bags of fertilizer and other acrigultural supplies to cultivate 7,000 square meters of corn and 3,500 square meters of beans. Since it is difficult for him to get out to buy supplies, he will get them all at once with the loan, and he will use them at the right time and in the right amounts. His goal is to build a brick house, since he is living with his mother.

kristian tiene 22 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene un hijo. Desde muy pequeño aprendió a trabajar en la agricultura junto a su madre; ya que era la única forma de recibir ingresos económicos al hogar. Durante toda la mañana trabaja en la agricultura y por la tarde vende sorbetes en toda la comunidad, debido a que lo que más desea es brindar todo lo necesario a su hijo. Los cultivos los siembra en las faldas de un cerro, eso le hace más difícil la labor.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 6 sacos de abono, entre otros insumos agrícolas para cultivar 7,000 metros cuadrados de maíz y 3,500 metros cuadrado de frijol. Como se le dificulta mucho salir a comprar los insumos, con el préstamo los adquirirá de una sola vez y los aplicara en el tiempo y cantidades correctas. Su objetivo es construir una casa de ladrillo debido a que esta viviendo junto a su mamá.
