A loan of $500 helped to buy the supplies he needs for his farming business.

Evilio's story

Evilio, 63, is married and has 3 children. He learned farming from his father, starting when he was only 5 years old.

Evilio is applying for a Fundacion Campo loan that he will use to buy the supplies he needs--seeds for jute and maize, fertilizers, pesticides, etc--for his farming business. He will plant 14,000 square meters of jute and 7,000 square meters of maize. Evilio's maize crop is large enough to feed his family and he will sell the jute crop to generate a good cash income. For the future, he wants to build a house of his own so that his children can live more comfortably.
