Eduardo Antonio
Eduardo is 26 years old and single. He has been working in agriculture for several years. He learned this trade from his mother, since he grew up without a father. He gets up at 4:00 a.m. with his mother to get ready to go to the land parcel he rents. He spends the whole day working and at night is a caretaker at a farm. He buys fertilizer, seeds, poison, etc. in the city, walking 2 km to get to the main road to catch the bus that takes him to town where he buys the materials at a cheaper price.

The loan he is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy fertilizer, seeds, pesticide and herbicide to plant 7,000 square meters and pay to rent the land. With the harvest, he will have good income to support his mother and himself. He plans on buying some land to build his house and give his mother a better quality of life.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a project to help young men and women in El Salvador (under age 26) launch their own businesses. The field partner is reducing the guarantee for these individuals, who normally would not have access to loans due to their lack of experience. Unemployment for young people is high in El Salvador, a fact that motivates many of them to leave the country instead of searching for work. Aside from access to financing, clients will also be grouped together according to their business types to receive training from CrediCampo's social development unit, and to share advice and support with one another.
