Félix, 65, has a spouse and five children. He’s worked in agriculture for about 30 years since all of his family is in this occupation. His parents taught him how to cultivate and in time he learned how to raise and fatten up cattle to sell and earn profits from those sales. He lives with his life companion and four of their children since one of them has partnered and no longer lives with them.

The loan he’s requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy three pregnant cows to raise since he currently has enough grass and feed for them and he’ll keep their offspring.

With the loan he’ll have extra income for his home while at the same time being able to take advantage of all his corn crop leftovers and that the small calves will remain as profit to raise and sell when they are big so he can earn even larger profits for him and his family.

He wants to continue to work this way because he loves working in the fields and generating higher profits this way because he wants to buy a truck to transport the cows he acquires himself because they charge him too much.

Félix tiene 65 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene cinco hijos. Se dedica a la agricultura desde hace unos treinta años; ya que en su familia todos se dedican a la mismo, sus padres le enseñaron el oficio de cultivar y el con el tiempo aprendió a criar y engordar bovinos para la venta y obtener ganancias de su venta. Vive con su compañera de vida y cuatro de sus hijos; ya que uno ya se acompaño y no vive con ellos.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar tres vacas que estén preñadas para poderlas mantener; ya que ahorita tiene suficiente pasto y alimentación para darles y quedarse con las crías de esas vacas.

Con el préstamo, tendrá un ingreso extra para su hogar al mismo tiempo poder aprovechar todos los rastrojos de sus cultivos de maíz y que le queden de ganancia los terneros pequeños criarlos y venderlos grandes para que pueda generar muchas mas ganancias para él y su familia.

Desea, seguir trabajando de esa manera ya que le encanta el trabajo del campo y así generar mayores ganancias; porque quiere comprar un camión para transportar las vacas que adquiere, ya que le cobran muy caro.
