A loan of $1,500 helped to buy fertilizer, weed-killer and foliar sprays for his corn crop, and sweet chili to sow 7,000 sqm of chili.


José Francisco's story

José is a 44-year old man, married and father of two children. He's been working in agriculture for 20 years, an activity that he learned from his parents. In order to buy the farming inputs he needs to cultivate corn, "pipían" (cushaw) and chili, he uses a pick up.

He will use the requested loan to Fundación Campo to buy fertilizer, weed-killer and foliar sprays for his corn crop, as well as sweet chili to sow 7,000 sqm of chili. This way he will have the inputs he needs to cultivate and harvest the products to later sell and obtain income for his family. His dream is to build a better house, as his current one is made of bamboo canes plastered with mud.
