Wilver has 21,000 square meters of corn planted and needs the loan to buy fertilizer to insure the corn harvest. In future, Wilver plans to build his own house and to continue working to feed the family.
Se dedica a trabajar la tierra desde los 14 años, aprendió con su padre quien lo llevaba a las fincas algodoneras a trabajar. Todavía trabaja la tierra, comparte el esfuerzo con un tío; al ser una persona emprendedora y con deseos de superarse, cuando no trabaja en su cultivo, vende medicinas, para ello hace visitas de puerta en puerta y así no depender directamente de la cosecha de maíz.
Wilver tiene sembradas 21,000 metros cuadrados de maíz y necesita el préstamo para comprar fertilizante, para así asegurar la cosecha del elote.
En un futuro Wilver tiene planeado construir su propia casa y seguir trabajando para a alimentar a la familia.
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.
