A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer, seeds, soil additives, pesticides, and to pay the rent on his cultivated lands.


Santos Marcos's story

Santos is 50 years old and has a partner. He is a person who has been working as a farmer since he was very young; he learned this trade from his parents. He works alongside his wife, since his children are fully grown and have their own family. Also, Santos works as a security guard on a plantation.

The loan which he is asking for from Fundación Campo, is to buy fertilizer, seeds, soil additives, pesticides, and to pay the rent on his land for cultivation. He plans to improve his house, since it gets wet during the winter.
