A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a team of oxen for plowing.

José Norberto's story

Jose, 52, has a partner and studied through the sixth grade. He gets up at 5 am every morning when he and his wife, who helps him farm, milk the cows.

Jose is engaged in agriculture, a craft he learned from his parents. He walks 3 kilometers to get to his plot to work in the morning. His wife also devotes herself to domestic chores and helps with the cows in the afternoons.

He is requesting a loan from CREDICAMPO to buy a team of oxen he needs to plow the land where he grows. He can earn additional income by plowing other fields. This income will help support his family.

Jose plans to buy land to plant near where he keeps his animals.
