A loan of $1,600 helped to buy wood, tiles, and adobe for building his house.

José Gabriel's story

José is 57 years old, married, and has five children (three daughters and two sons). All of his children are grown. Since the age of 10, José has worked in the agricultural trade, growing corn, beans, and sorghum. His father was the one who taught him this trade and now José is passing his knowledge on to his two sons.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo will be used to buy wood, tiles, and adobe so that he can build his house. The house where he is currently resides does not have appropriate living conditions since it is built from laminate and scrap material. José wants to provide a decent home for his family. He also wants to continue working in agriculture so that he can provide the food that his family needs. Accomplishing these two feats would make him feel proud.
