A loan of $400 helped to buy three sacks of fertilizer, to buy herbicides, and to pay for labor.


Fautino's story

Fautino, age 49, lives with his wife and their three children. He has worked in agriculture ever since he was ten years old. It was his mother who taught him because his father died when he was very little. Therefore, it fell to his mother and him to work to support the family. He gets up very early, at 4:00 a.m., to have a cup of coffee and then leave at 5:00 a.m. He gets to work at 6:00 a.m. because he walks for an hour. He does this wholeheartedly so that his children flourish. He buys the supplies for his work in a city. He gets on a bus for 45 minutes, then he gets on another bus for another 45 minutes. The loan he is requesting from the Fundación Campo is to buy three sacks of fertilizer, to buy herbicides, and to pay for labor. With this investment he will be able to have what is needed to work with his crops. He will have the supplies he needs on hand in order for his harvest to be productive. His wish is to work in order to save and to buy a place to build a house for his children. The place where they live is very small, and he wants each one of his children to have a place to live.
