San Miguel, El Salvador / Agriculture

A loan of $1,000 helped to buy three cows and two sacks of fertilizer for his cultivation of corn.


José Félix's story

Don José is 62, is a widower, and has four children. Throughout his life he has made a living through agricultural work; it was his parents who taught him. He buys his materials in a city that is 20 minutes from his house, and where the purchase is cheaper.

He asks for a loan from Fundación Campo in order to buy three cows and two sacks of fertilizer for his cultivation of corn. With the purchase of the cows he will be able to generate extra income for his home, fulfilling the need to have milk and cheese for his family and at the same time he will save having to purchase these. Don José wishes to have several cows in order to sell cheese throughout all of his community since it is very limited there and he believes that he would make a profit.
