Jorge is 57-years-old, is married, and has two children. He is a person that has worked in agriculture for several years. He learned this trade from his parents. He wakes up at 4:00 am every morning with his family to prepare himself and go to the plot of land. He passes his day working. In the afternoon he travels to any destination that seeks him.
The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo (Camp Foundation) is to purchase oxen that help him to plough the land to earn a better income. He will use the money to support his family. He plans to buy a vehicle because the one he has is rented and he is almost out of income.
Jorge tiene 57 años de edad, esta acompañado y ha procreado dos hijos. Es una persona que tiene varios años de dedicarse a la agricultura, oficio que aprendió de sus padres. Se levanta a las 4:00 a.m. Junto a su familia para prepararse e irse a la parcela que alquila, pasa todo el día trabajando, en la tarde realiza viajes para cualquier destino que lo busquen.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar dos bueyes; que le ayuden a arar la tierra y obtener mejores ingresos por el servicio que preste; fondos que utilizara para el sustento de su familia. Planea comprar un vehículo; ya que el que posee es alquilado y casi no le quedan ingresos.
