Margarito's story

Margarito is 40 years old, lives with his life partner, and they have one son. He has worked in agriculture since he was 15 years old, a profession that he learned from his father. Also, he has worked raising pigs for 10 years, and he learned about this from his mother. He makes a half hour journey in a pick up truck on bad roads in order to buy the products he needs. He is asking for this loan from Fundación Campo to buy 4 sacks of fertilizer, herbicides, 2 pigs, 800 pounds of pig feed, and payment for laborers to help with his corn crop. With this money, he will buy all that he needs for his crops, to feed and raise his pigs, and consequently for his income. Margarito wants to expand his pig farm in a short time to increase his earnings.
