Moisés Cruz
Moises, 60, lives with a partner and has 2 daughters. Only one of the daughters is in school, the other is not yet attending. Moises has a 6th grade education, because from the age of 8 he started to learn to farm alongside his father and his uncles. They used to cultivate corn and vegetables.

Today, he is continuing with this family tradition. To develop his crops, he travels a distance of about 1 kilometer to arrive in the place where he has his fields.

Moises is requesting a loan from Fundacion Campo to buy 4,000 chili seedlings to plant, and to buy fertilizers and special pesticides for these plants. He aspires to get great results from his harvest so that he can pay off his debt, as well as expand and diversify his crops.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a CrediCampo project to help rural farmers living in extreme poverty plant basic grains to feed their families. Excess product is sold on the local market. These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer. This is considered a high risk loan due to the population and loan purpose, and CrediCampo is one of the very few institutions in El Salvador willing to working with these farmers.
