A loan of $500 helped to buy seeds, pesticides and fertilizers, and to pay laborers to grow 14,000 square meters of corn.


José Arnoldo's story

José is 42 years old, married, and has eleven children. He has been farming since he was very young and it was his dad who taught him how. He also works as a builder's assistant.

José is requesting a loan from Fundación Campo to buy seeds, pesticides and fertilizers, and to pay laborers to grow 14,000 square meters of corn.

As a result of this investment, José's production will increase. He will sell some of his crops and use the rest for his family's own consumption. What he would like is to make more income and improve his family's quality of life.
