José Balbino
José is 57 years old. He has a live-in partner and seven children. He has been working in agriculture and raising cattle ever since he was 12 years old. His father taught him this line of work. Thanks to this knowledge he has been able to support his family, which is very large. His children are currently studying and they also learn the trade from him.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to purchase farming supplies and prepare the land for sowing. He'll also use part of it to purchase two doors for one of his sons' house. With this investment he'll ensure part of the food he provides for his children. He wishes to buy more cattle in order to sell milk.
