Wilmer Alberto's story

Wilmer is a 25-year-old young man. He is single and lives with his parents. Wilmer has been working in agriculture for several years. He learned this trade from his mother and father. Wilmer gets up at 5 a.m. each morning to get ready to work on the land with his parents before going to another job at a business that sells spare auto parts. Wilmer buy supplies for his family's farm such as pest-control substances, fertilizers, seeds, etc. in the city. To get there he must take a bus from a stop located five kilometers away from his home.

Wilmer is requesting this loan from Fundación Campo in order to buy 500 chickens for fattening and to start his own farm. He hopes to make a living from this activity so that he can help his family with his increased earnings. Selling chickens will help to increase his profits and stabilize his finances so that he can work solely in this trade. Wilmer plans to expand his business in the future and increase his profits.
