Luís Iban's story

He works in agriculture. However, 10 years ago he learned how to do building work, and now has a house thanks to the loans he received from Fundación Campo.

Luís wants to establish a broiler chicken farm. In order to do this, he needs to build a chicken coop. This is why he is requesting a loan, so that he can purchase 300 blocks, 6 bags of cement, half a load of construction timber, 24 yards of chicken wire, chickens, feed, vaccines, vitamins, roofing materials, and to pay for labour. He says that Christmas is coming and he hopes to earn a very good profit during this time. The money he earns will enable him to save and in this way improve his quality of life.

His aim is to continue working the bean fields and his chicken and hen farm. He will also continue to do building work and to provide a nixtamal milling service. He does all this with the clear intention of improving his family's quality of life, and to ensure that his son studies and becomes a good professional.
