A loan of $400 helped to pay off a loan in another institution and to use the rest to buy farm supplies.

Jesús's story

Jesús, 42, is married and has three children. He’s worked growing corn and coffee since he was little since it’s an occupation he learned from his father. These crops are very productive which is why he’s dedicated himself to this. To buy supplies he travels in a vehicle that transports people from his community every day to the nearest town and he buys supplies with money lent to him by financial institutions and now he’s decided to borrow from Fundación Campo.

The loan he’s asking Fundación Campo for is to pay off a loan he has with another institution and to use the rest to buy two sacks of manure, worm poison and herbicide for the corn crop. He’ll improve with the loan because since there was no harvest he sometimes had nothing to eat and sometimes was unable to pay his loan and meet his obligations with the person who helped him last year. His goal is to improve his coffee crop in order to have a good crop yield and build a larger concrete block house.
