El Salvador
Usulután, El Salvador / Agriculture

A loan of $1,600 helped to buy fertilizer, seed, pesticide, and herbicide, and to pay rent on his land.


Pablo's story

Pablo, 66, is married and has two children. For more than 50 years he has worked in agriculture, which he learned from his father. He gets up at 4 a.m. along with his wife and children to get ready to go to work on his 14,000-square-meter corn crop. They work all morning and in the afternoon his children go to school while Pablo does other tasks to support the household.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy manure, seed, pesticide, and herbicide, and to pay rent on his plot of land.

This way he'll be able to plant corn without any problems so he can earn the income to support his family and be able to buy some dairy cows to sell dairy products.
