Mario Antonio
Mario is 28 years old and is a high school graduate. His spouse does not work; she does all the household chores and cares for their three children. Two of their children study and the other is an infant. Only he and his family live in the house and therefore they are dependent on each other.

He has been employed for three years in farmland services. He begins his work day at 7:00 a.m. and leaves at 5:00p.m. At the same time, he cultivates the land and sows corn; this is an extra deposit for the family.

The loan that he is asking Fundación Campo is to buy fertilizers, pesticides and to prepare the land to care for 7,000 square meters of corn harvest.

He hopes to have a lot of production and conserve the corn all year. He hopes to generate extra deposits to save and pay off debts that he has and give the best to his children who need it the most.

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.
