A loan of $1,000 helped to buy materials to build a house from adobe and to pay workers.

Pedro Ángel's story

Pedro is 61 years old and is married with five children. He lives very humbly and he is very well-known in the place where he lives for being a hard-working man. He has worked in agriculture from a very young age as he wasn't given the opportunity to study because at that time his parents were more concerned about working. However, he tells us that he is happy that he learnt to work.

In order to buy agricultural supplies, Pedro must travel with his mule some 1000 metres from his house to the place where a vehicle waits for him to travel to the city, as the place where he lives is difficult to access.

The loan which he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy material to build a house from adobe and to pay workers. This house will be for his son, or for him depending on how it turns out. His wish is for his son to have a decent place to live with basic amenities such as drinking water and electricity, which will be constructed with his own hands. Besides, he wants to continue working hard in agriculture for the wellbeing of his family.
