Jorge Alberto


A loan of $500 helped to set up an electric mill and bring this service to his community, since there is no mill in the area where he lives.


Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge is 54 years old, is married and has three adult children. He lives only with his wife. He has been a taxi driver for 16 years; thus his client base is substantial. He works from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

He is seeking a loan from Fundacion Campo in order to set up an electric mill and bring this service to his community, since there is no mill in the area where he lives. Thus, the business is fairly profitable for him and his family. His longer-term goal is to buy a second mill and expand his services so he can generate income that will enable him to have a better quality of life.
