José René's story

José is a 64-year old man who is married and has three children. He has worked in the cultivation of basic grains since he was 12 years old, an activity that his family has always done and that he learned from his parents. He has never worked in any other activity. In order to buy the necessary products to cultivate, he needs to travel for 1 hour riding a pick up that passes by his canton twice a day.

He is requesting a loan to Fundación Campo to buy fertilizers, weed-killers and animal feed and products, such as vitamins, flour, salt and medicines. Thanks to this loan, he will be able to cultivate more and to maintain his pastures and livestock. He sells a portion of the grains, keeps another for his own consumption and uses the forage for the animals so that they can be sold at a higher price and produce more milk. All of this will help to improve his revenue and to cover household expenses. His goal is to leave his family with a property where they can keep working and increase the family's patrimony.
