Juan De La Crúz
He has been a farmer since the age of 15.
The loan requested through Fundación Campo is to buy ten sheets of sheet roofing for his house, two quintals of feed for his chickens and two quintals of fertilizer.
With the loan he will fix his house to protect him from the rain since the walls are deteriorating and he will be able to sleep well without having to think they will get wet while he is resting.
His plans include to expand his chicken business, increase the size of the shed and plant more grain (corn, beans) then what he plants today.
El préstamo que esta solicitando Fundación Campo, es para comprar 10 pliegos de lámina para techar su casa, 2 quintales de concentrado para sus pollos y 2 quintales de fertilizantes.
Con la inversión, techara su casa, para protegerse de la lluvia ya que las paredes se le están deteriorando y podrá dormir tranquilo sin pensar que se mojara por las noches cuando este descansando.
Entre sus planes esta, ampliar el negocio de los pollos, hacer más grande la galera y sembrar más granos (maíz, frijol) de lo que hasta hoy siembra.
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.
