Edwin and his partner also have a store that she manages; he helps her in the store after he comes home from work. To meet all of his daily responsibilities on time, Edwin has to wake up at five a.m. and then drive six hours to where the land he works. He comes home at the end of the day to spend time with his daughters.
To purchase farming supplies, Edwin has to ride in the back of a pickup truck for an hour.
Edwin is requesting a loan from the Fundación Campo to purchase a bag of seeds, two gallons of beans, two liters of pesticides, and ten bags of manure. With the proper inputs, Edwin will have time to preserve his harvest so he won't suffer losses. He's already used savings to invest in his farm.
Edwin's dream is for his daughters to study. He also hopes to be able to purchase land and build his own home, as he now lives in his mother-in-law's house.

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.
