A loan of $650 helped to buy a dairy cow to provide another source of income for his family.

Joaquín Humberto's story

Joaquín is 59 years old, married with three children. He has worked in agriculture from an early age, since as the only son in his large family he had to help his stepfather to care for the animals and in agricultural pursuits.

When he was 18 years old he got married and started his own family. Little by little he was buying animals from what he saved from farm work. He buys his farming supplies in the city which is four kilometers from his home, later taking the supplies on the bus to a place for cart drivers, because the bus does not go past his home.

The loan that he is requesting through Fundación Campo is to buy a dairy cow. With the purchase of a cow he will have another source of income for his family and he can provide studies for the young children.
