José Rodolfo
José is a 69 year old man. He is married and has three children. He is a person who has been working in farming for several years, a trade he learned from his parents. Back then, it was what parents passed on to their children, because of the difficult family financial situation. He gets up at 5:00 a.m. to get ready with his wife and children to go to their cropland to work. Later he goes to other land belonging to other people to work as a laborer. To buy the agricultural materials, he has to walk about 6 kilometers to arrive at the place where he catches the bus.

The loan he is asking Fundación Campo for is to buy three dairy cows to sell the milk and have better income to support his family.

In the future, José plans on being able to buy more dairy cows and producing more milk to be processed. He doesn't want to depend just on his crops, but have another source of income as well.

José es un hombre de 69 años de edad, casado y ha procreado tres hijos. Es una persona que tiene varios años de dedicarse a la agricultura, oficio que aprendió de sus padres, ya que en ese tiempo era lo que los padres heredaban a sus hijos, por la difícil situación económica familiar. Se levanta a las 5:00 a.m. para prepararse junto a su esposa e hijos e ir al terreno en donde cultivan a trabajar; luego se dirige a otros terrenos de otras personas a prestar sus servicios como jornal. Para comprar los insumos agrícolas, debe caminar a pie unos 6 kilómetros hasta llegar al lugar en donde aborda el autobús.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar tres vacas lecheras, para vender la leche y generar mejores ingreso para el sustento de su familia

José planea en un futuro poder comprar más vacas lecheras y producir mas leche para procesarla, ya que no quiere depender solo de sus cultivos; sino de otra fuente de ingresos tambien.
