Juan José
Juan is 36 years old and is married with 3 children; two are one month old and the other is 5 and is in school. Juan has a 5th grade education. His wife is a shopkeeper, but all four people live at home and depend on Juan. He has worked in agriculture for 17 years planting vegetables and learned by working with his father. He decided to do this kind of work because he noticed that it provided a better income than what he was doing before - working in public transport.

The loan will be used to buy fertilizers that are absorbed through the leaves and to pay laborers to prepare the land. He hopes that his work will allow him to educate his children and to have the necessities for his newborn twin daughters.

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.
