A loan of $500 helped buy fertilizer, herbicides, insecticides, and other supplies needed to grow corn.

Luís Ramon's story

Luis is 70 years old and is married with 5 children.
He has farmed since the age of 16. His father taught him this work, as it was the only work he knew.
Luis needs supplies for his crops to develop. He must go to the city in search of them. It takes 15 minutes on foot to get to where he can board a car. Then it takes 40 minutes to get to the place where they sell farming supplies.
He requests the loan from Fundación Campo to buy fertilizer, herbicides, insecticides, and more, with which he will maintain an area of corn (7000 square meters) that he has planted. With the loan, he will be able to pick the fruit on time and the production will be good and he will be able to feed his family.
Luis hopes to increase his crop area to produce more and get better income and be able to give his family everything they need.
