Pedro Antonio's story

Pedro is 59 years old, he has a partner and four children. He has lived in his own house with his life partner for 28 years and they have brought up two daughters and two sons, two of whom are studying. He has made a living in agriculture for the past 40 years; he cultivates corn, beans, millet. He learnt this activity from his father. He buys his farming supplies from a city which is 5.3 kilometres away from his house. Together with other farmers, they arrange to buy their supplies together in order to get them at a lower price.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to pay the rent on the land where he will cultivate corn, beans, millet and bananas. With this loan he will be able to have clean and well fertilized land so that his yield is abundant. His dream is to install a stall to sell basic grains: to sell the production he obtains from his crops.
