Jesus, 59 years old, is the father of one child. He has worked as a farmer in agriculture and ranching since he was 9 years old. His father taught him how to sow basic grains and raise cows for milk as a tool to move forward in life.

He buys cow feed and agricultural supplies for sowing basic grains in a town 20 minutes from the community where he lives, although he also has silos for the cow feed and he gets basic materials by cultivating the pastures. He buys some remaining items for harvesting from farmers in the area where he works.

The loan he is requesting through Fundación Campo is to buy 2 cows for milk in order to increase the number of his animals and increase milk production to sell. Once he has more milk, he can diversify and offer better quality products to new customers, giving him a better opportunity to grow his business of selling milk and similar products. This will allow him to provide for his family, his mother, and his child. His main goal is to increase the number of animals he has so he will have more opportunities to move forward.

Los insumos agrícolas para la siembra de granos básicos y el concentrado para ganado lechero los compra en el municipio ubicado a 20 minutos de la comunidad donde vive, aunque prepara silos para la alimentación de ganado y las materia primas las obtiene cultivando los pastos y la compra de algunos residuos de la cosecha a agricultores de la zona donde vive.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar 2 vacas lecheras; con el fin de incrementar el número de animales que posee e incrementar la producción de leche para comercializarla. Al obtener mayor cantidad de leche puede diversificarse y ofrecer mayor cantidad de productos a nuevos clientes, teniendo mayor oportunidad de crecimiento en su negocio de venta de leche y otros derivados, para llevar el sustento a su familia, su madre y su hijo. Él tiene como objetivo principal, incrementar el número de animales que maneja actualmente con el fin de poder generar mas oportunidades de negocios para salir adelante.
