A loan of $1,000 helped to rent farmland.

Carlos Ernesto's story

Carlos is 28 years old, married, and has two children. Since age 15 he has been doing farm work. His parents taught him and he has always worked for himself and for others. Corn is his greatest crop and he also raises vegetables like pipian.

He is asking for this loan through Fundación Campo so he can pay rent on 14,000 square meters of farmland to raise corn. This loan will allow him to secure the land where he will plant in the coming season so that he can sell the harvest and have an extra income for the family. What he really wants is to be able to save up to buy his own land.
