Valmore De Jesús
Valmore has worked in agriculture since he was a boy; he’d accompany his father to work and that’s how he learned everything he knows to this day. He works the land alone and says it’s difficult now because he’s not young anymore.
He will use the loan to buy fertilizer for the crops already planted and to pay labor costs. He hopes to harvest good grain and insure food for another year and if possible to sell part of the harvest for a good price.
Desde pequeño a Valmore le gusto el trabajo agrícola, se iba con su padre a trabajar y fue así que aprendió todo lo que hoy en día sabe. Él solo trabaja la tierra y comenta que se le hace difícil porque ya no es un joven.
El préstamo sera utilizado, para comprar fertilizantes para el cultivo ya establecido y para pagar mano. Espera cosechar buen grano y asegurar el alimento hasta el otro año y si hay posibilidad vender parte de la cosecha a buen precio.
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.
