A loan of $700 helped to buy farming supplies and to prepare the ground for sowing 14,000 square metres of corn.


Juan Francisco's story

Juan is 72 years old. He has a common-law partner and two children. He began his working life at age 12 because his family is very large and he has 7 siblings, so he had to work very hard to help them. At age 17 he met his partner and had two children; one of them was able to finish his studies. The loan he is applying for from Fundación Campo is to buy farming supplies and to prepare the ground to sow 14,000 square metres of corn. He hopes to get a good harvest so his income improves and to diversify his crops; he is thinking about growing jícama (edible tuber similar to but larger than an onion.)
