A loan of $1,000 helped to buy farm supplies.

Víctor Manuel's story

Víctor, 29, has a spouse and two children. He’s worked in agriculture since childhood; his father taught him. The supplies he needs for his productive activities and for his home he gets in a city that’s 35 kilometers from his house; it takes two-and-a-half hours by bus because transport is quite scarce.

The loan he’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy four sacks of corn seeds, 24 quintals of manure, fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide. With this investment he will buy all the supplies at the same time so he won’t have to make several trips that are so difficult to do because of the transportation situation where he lives. He will be able to apply them in a timely fashion and in the right amounts so that his crop yields will be good.

He hopes his children will complete their schooling, to buy a piece of land and to continue working in agriculture focusing for the most part on vegetables and fruit taking advantage of the zone he lives in which is propitious for these types of crops.
