Juan is 25 years old and the father of one son. He has worked in agriculture for several years, a trade that he learned from his father, who passed away. He gets up at 4:00 a.m. with his mother to get ready and go to the plot that he rents, where he spends part of the morning. Then he works in his vehicle making trips for the rest of the day while a relative takes care of his son, since he is a single father.
The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy dairy cows to produce milk. In this way, he hopes to make a good income to support his mother and his son. Additionally, he wants to buy some land to build a house and provide a better quality of life for his mother and son.
