A loan of $400 helped to buy two young bulls for grazing.

José Carmen's story

José, 45, lives with his wife and has three children. He has made a living in agriculture from a very young age. In his youth, parents weren't worried about going to school. In his case it was more difficult because his father died when José was five years old and he grew up with his grandparents, with whom he learned agricultural work.

José says that when he got married he worked with more care and dedication for his family. He gets up at 4:30 a.m. to let the young bulls out. Then he has a cup of coffee to go out to work, which is 30 minutes away. He works for seven hours, then returns home.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy two young bulls to graze because there is stubble remaining from the harvest.

His goals are to give his children an education so they're academically prepared and to build his house of brick, because the one he has now is of bamboo.
