A loan of $500 helped to buy 6 bags of fertilizer and other agricultural supplies.

Kristian Amilcar's story

Kristian is 22 years old, is in a relationship, and has a son. As a small boy he learned to work in agriculture alongside his mother, since this was the only way to make a household income. He works all morning farming, and in the afternoon he sells sorbet to the community, because what he wants most is to provide for all of his son's needs. He plants his crops on the slopes of a hill, which makes the work more difficult.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy 6 bags of fertilizer and other acrigultural supplies to cultivate 7,000 square meters of corn and 3,500 square meters of beans. Since it is difficult for him to get out to buy supplies, he will get them all at once with the loan, and he will use them at the right time and in the right amounts. His goal is to build a brick house, since he is living with his mother.
