Magdaleno's story

Magdaleno, 47, has a common-law spouse and two children; a six-year-old boy who is in first year of primary school and a two-year-old girl. He farms 14,000 square meters of corn and works as a bricklayer's assistant.

The loan he is requesting from Fundacion Campo (Foundation Field), is to repair the floor in his house since it is of earth and buy tiles to put them on the roof of the house, as it is of laminate and it gets really hot. The remainder he will use to buy fertilizer.

The investment will avoid health problems his children may have when playing in the earth since they are small and can live much better in the house. And with the harvest he can obtain part of the family's diet.

His wish is for his children to study at university.
