Lorenzo De Jesús
He says that he has been dedicating all of his efforts to agriculture, as he did not have help from his family. Also, that he has been growing corn and beans by himself since he was 20 years old, and that it was his mother who taught him to farm. Lorenzo also works when someone asks for him.
The loan that he is requesting from CrediCampo is for purchasing fertilizer and insecticide. And, for clearing the land, as he says that he doesn’t feel capable of doing it alone so his neighbor helps, but he has to pay him. With this loan he will be certain of what he will plant, and he knows that in the future he will be able to have his harvest and be sure to have corn and beans in his house.
His desire is to have a tranquil life where he could rest, as he gave up all of the time to working. He hopes that with the loan he can improve the roof of his house which is in bad condition.
Con todo el esfuerzo del mundo dice que él se ha ido dedicando a la agricultura, porque no contó con el apoyo de su familia, él por sí mismo se ha dedicado a la siembra del maíz y frijol desde que tenía 20años de edad, que fue su madre la que le enseño a cultivar. Lorenzo también hace trabajos cuando alguien lo busca.
El préstamo que esta solicitando a CREDICAMPO, es para comprar abono, insecticidas y en la chapoda del terreno; ya que así como esta dice que no se siente capaz de hacerlo solo, así que un vecino le ayuda pero él le tiene que pagar. Con este préstamo estará seguro de lo que va a sembrar y que sabe que en el futuro, él podrá tener su cosecha, y tener seguro el maíz y los frijoles en su casa.
Su deseo es tener una vida tranquila donde pueda descansar, por todo el tiempo que se sacrificó trabajando, espera con la adquisición del crédito el satisfacer su necesidad de mejorar el techo de su casa que está en malas condiciones.

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.
