Pedro Ernesto
Pedro is 27 years old, married, and has one daughter. He lives together with an aunt, his daughter, and his life partner. His father, from a very early age, taught him how to work agriculture; it has been 20 years since he learned to grow corn and beans. At this moment, in addition to agriculture, he is learning the trade of bricklaying. He acquires his agricultural supplies in a city that is 12 kilometers from his house and he covers this distance in a wagon.

The loan that he is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide, and seed to plant corn and beans. This way he will have the supplies that he needs to develop his crops on time and to get a good harvest that allows him to support his family and make sales to get extra income.

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.
