Pedro's story

Pedro is 37 years old. He lives with his wife and his four children ranging from age 10 to 18. He's a very hardworking person who has been working in agriculture for 20 years, growing corn, vegetables and plantains. He has learned this line of work from his father ever since he was very young. He buys the products and supplies in the city, where he acquires them at better prices. It takes him 40 minutes to get there on his car, and sometimes he makes use of this by taking his plantains to be sold at the market and purchasing the supplies on the same trip. The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to purchase fertilizer and compost for a plantain crop of 10,500 square meters, which he has been able to sow thanks to the loans that Fundación has provided him with. With this investment he'll be able to obtain a good harvest, which will allow him to develop and expand his crop, so as to increase his family's income. His wish is to work with a larger quantity of cattle, improve the yard where he keeps the cattle and help his children in their studies.
