A loan of $500 helped to pay for labor and to purchase fertilizers and four sacks of manure to grow his crops.

Miguel Alfonso's story

Miguel is 79 years old. He is in a common-law marriage and has two children. He has been working as a laborer, farming the land, since he was twelve years old. He acquires the supplies he needs in a town thirty minutes away and transports them back home in a vehicle.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo will be used to purchase farming supplies to grow corn and sorghum. He will sell part of it and use the rest for his family's consumption. This will allow him to buy supplies at a lower price because he will make one large purchase, and he will be able to save money for use in the next harvest.
