Luís Antonio
Luis is 64 years old, single, and lives with his parents. He is in charge of caring for them as they are sick. He is well known in the community. He has been working in agriculture for more than 50 years, an activity he does with great skill, besides being a mason, and fortunately he was able to do the two jobs being a mason for more than 45 years.

The loan he is asking for from Fundación Campo is to install a little holding enclosure for small livestock (laying chickens and chickens to sell) and to buy agriculture supplies to cultivate 21,000 square meters of sorghum and 14,000 square meters of corn.

One of the first necessities to satisfy is to obtain income to ensure better living conditions for his family, with the investment of the farm he can give work to his relatives so they can earn money, and also sell the harvest and provide grains for household consumption and to sell.

His plan is to maintain the farm to the point where he not only sells chickens and eggs but also to raise pigs, to build his own house and be able to leave an inheritance to one of his nephews as he did not have children, and in addition he wants to save for the near future.
