Jose Luis's story

Jose Luis is 41 years old. He has a significant other, and has two children.

For the last 20 years, Jose Luis has been working as a day-laborer, a trade he learned from his father. He lives on the farm where he works, and has one day off a week to go visit his family.

Jose Luis grows corn for his family's consumption, and travels for half an hour to a nearby city to purchase his farming supplies. Jose Luis plants 7,000 square meters of corn, and has asked for a loan from Fundación Campo for the purchase of supplies for his farming. In addition to these supplies, Jose Luis wants to buy some pigs to fatten and sell. With the planting, Jose Luis will ensure that he has corn throughout the year for his family's consumption. The pigs will provide him with an additional source of income to his salary as a day-laborer.

In the future, Jose Luis would like to have a pig-raising business. His boss is giving him the opportunity to keep the pigs in his farm, so that Jose Luis can do well.

In the future, Jose Luis would also like to own his own home.
