Valmore De Jesús
Valmore, 56, is married with five children who are 24, 26, 28, 30 and 33 years of age. All are independent with families of their own. His wife’s a housewife and a granddaughter lives with them.

Valmore has worked in agriculture since he was a boy; he’d accompany his father to work and that’s how he learned everything he knows to this day. He works the land alone and says it’s difficult now because he’s not young anymore.

He will use the loan to buy fertilizer for the crops already planted and to pay labor costs. He hopes to harvest good grain and insure food for another year and if possible to sell part of the harvest for a good price.

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.
