A loan of $400 helped to buy fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide, and seed to grow corn and beans.


Pedro Ernesto's story

Pedro is 27 years old, married, and has one daughter. He lives together with an aunt, his daughter, and his life partner. His father, from a very early age, taught him how to work agriculture; it has been 20 years since he learned to grow corn and beans. At this moment, in addition to agriculture, he is learning the trade of bricklaying. He acquires his agricultural supplies in a city that is 12 kilometers from his house and he covers this distance in a wagon.

The loan that he is asking for from Fundación Campo is to buy fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide, and seed to plant corn and beans. This way he will have the supplies that he needs to develop his crops on time and to get a good harvest that allows him to support his family and make sales to get extra income.
