A loan of $200 helped to prepare the land to grow corn, since if he does not do so at this moment, the person who will rent to him can rent the land to another person, and he will not have a place to raise his crops.


José Antonio's story

José is 44 years old. He is married and has five children. All of his life he has worked in agriculture, a profession he learned from his father and he has handed down to his children. To buy agricultural supplies, he has to travel on roads that are in a bad state for an hour, when he arrives at a place where he boards the bus, which then takes him to the closest village. The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to prepare the land to grow corn, since if he does not do so at this moment, the person who will rent to him can rent the land to another person, and he will not have a place to grow his crops. In this way, his house will at least not be without corn and beans. His greatest dream is to improve his home since it is constructed of wattle and daub and it is deteriorating, which is why he wants to improve it.
