Amilcar De Dolores
He is seeking a loan from Fundación Campo in order to buy seeds, fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides for the cultivation of corn, rice and sorghum. This loan is very important to him, since without it he would not be able to grow his crops as he does not have sufficient resources to do so on his own. He hopes to be able to grow sufficient crops to help to feed his family and to sell the remaining crops and use the income to meet other family expenses.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar abono, semillas, pesticidas, herbicidas para cultivar maíz, maicillo y arroz. El crédito es muy importante para él; ya que sino es así no cultivara, porque no tiene los suficientes recursos para hacerlo. Con sus cultivos, espera obtener los granos que le sirvan para la alimentación de su familia y para la venta con los cuales recibirá ingresos para comprar la otra parte de la alimentación familiar.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of a CrediCampo project to help rural farmers living in extreme poverty plant basic grains to feed their families. Excess product is sold on the local market. These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer. This is considered a high risk loan due to the population and loan purpose, and CrediCampo is one of the very few institutions in El Salvador willing to working with these farmers.
