Tomás's story

Tomas is 59 years old, married and has eight children out of whom only two live with them. He started working at the age of ten cutting maguey (mezcal) and then spent seven years working as a day-laborer. At seventeen he started working on coffee plantations pruning the coffee trees, cleaning, fertilizing, picking coffee beans etc. At twenty-two he became a bricklayer and married his wife.

His family is very close and all of his children support him economically. He has a good reputation in the community and has values and principles. He is a recurring Fundación Campo client and currently he is the best bricklayer in his community.

He is applying for a loan from Fundación Campo to buy bricks, wooden frames, wooden beams, nails and to pay for labor so he can repair the roof of his home. This will make it a comfortable and decent home where his family can feel safe and secure. He wishes to start a cattle and pig butchery as well as a broiler and egg laying chicken farm. And of course, to continue improving his family ties.
