Nelson De Jesús
Nelson is a farmer and he also works in town selling sorbets. He learned farming from his father and he learned sorbet selling from a friend who offered him a job. Currently this work is going very well for Nelson. The place where he farms is at a 5 minute walking distance from his home, and the other place where he works takes a 30 minute bus ride. He does his farm work from 6:00 a.m. until noon, and when he leaves to sell sorbets he works from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.
The loan that he is requesting from CrediCampo will be used for preparation of the land to plant corn, to pay the rent for the land, and to buy farming supplies. With the help of the loan he can cover these necessities.
Nelson's plan is to continue working so he can improve his home. This is his biggest dream, together with his wife. The loan will help them to improve corn production and later sell it, and to save little by little to improve their home. They will achieve all of this, working together for one common goal.

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.
