Francisco De Jesús's story

Francisco is 38 years old and is a farmer. He studied up to Grade 4. He is married, his wife does domestic work and they have 2 children, both of whom are in school.

Francisco has been farming since he was 15 years old. His father taught him knowing that it would serve him as work in the future. He also works as a guard in a coffee processing plant and that also generates income for his family. He has been doing this for 3 years and he decided to do this as a friend recommended him to work there. He works 24 hours and rests 24 hours. The days he has off he work at his farming.

The loan he is requesting from CrediCampo is to buy 4 bags of fertilizer to cultivate 14,000 sq. meters of land. He will also buy a liter of herbicide to kill the weeds that harm his crops and also find people to help him with his growing. This will help him as with the support of the loans he can cultivate more and make more income. Francisco's dream is to continue farming and be able to help his wife get ahead and have lots of income to support his children and their studies.
