A loan of $1,000 helped to buy seed and agricultural supplies.

José Ángel's story

José, 54, is married and has three children. He learned to farm at a young age, helping his father and his siblings cultivate the land. Since then he has worked in agriculture and livestock. This is why he has a lot of experience in his job, which for many years has been his support and that of his family.

He buys soil amendments, fertilizer, and other inputs in the closest city, about 30 minutes from his house. He takes a bus that goes by only once a day, so he has to pay attention to the time. To go out and wait for the bus he has to walk some 15 minutes. His children have the cart ready to carry the sacks to the house.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy seed, fertilizer, soil amendments, herbicide, and pesticide for the crops. This way he'll cover his household needs with the profits from the sale of the harvest and save a little money for the next planting.

His goal is to cultivate more land to improve his family's quality of life.
