A loan of $500 helped to buy three bags of compost, herbicides and fertilizer sprays for his crops.


Santos Alexander's story

Santos, 41, is married and has two children. He has been growing basic grains and vegetables since he was 19 years old, taught by his father. In order to buy all the agricultural supplies he needs, he has to ride his bicycle for twenty-five minutes and then pay somebody to take them back home.

Santos is requesting a loan to Fundación Campo to buy three bags of compost, herbicides and fertilizer sprays for his plantations. He will cultivate 7,000 square meters with basic grains for his family’s consumption and to sell. With the profits he wants to buy more animals and increase his milk production, and help his children as much as he can.
