José Daniel
José is fifty years old, and unfortunately, he did not have the opportunity to attend school. He is married, and his wife takes care of their home. They have ten children, some of whom are already grown and working in the country, and others who are still minors, studying in school.

José is a businessperson who has been buying and selling animals such as pigs and cows for twenty years; an occupation that he learned from his father, as he always accompanied him on his trips to the cantons. Every day he travels in his car to the nearby cantons, with the goal of earning money through this work. He needs this loan in order to expand his business, because he would like to purchase more cattle to sell.

José dreams of having a bigger house, as the one where he lives is very small and his family is fairly numerous; and he also wants his children to complete their studies.

He wants to continue striving every day to work and support his family.

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.
