A loan of $1,600 helped buy two cows and an industrial sewing machine to make private school uniforms and any other work that comes his way from others.


Juan Bautista's story

Juan, 36, is married and has five children. He lives with his wife and five children. As a child, his parents taught him to work hard in agriculture and livestock farming, as well, he learned bricklaying. At 20 years of age he learned how to be a tailor, which is his job today. He makes pants, blouses, shirts and other articles of clothing. He hasn't left farming behind as he continues at a smaller scale.
The loan he is requesting from Fundacion Campo is to buy two cows and an industrial sewing machine to make private school uniforms and any other work that comes his way from others. He'll use the small parcel of land he owns to lead the cows to pasture as well as satisfy the demand for tailored clothing. His dream is to own a place for his tailor shop and buy a car, as he has to move around to faraway areas.
