José Santos's story

José is 33 years old and studied up to the third grade because the school he attended only had classes available up to that grade. He is married and his wife works within the home while also attending to a small store where they sell basic needs products. They are the parents of three children, just one of whom is studying because the other two are still too young. His children are his only dependents.

José has been working in agriculture for 28 years, having learned from his father. He chose this work because he can make an honest living this way. He travels 15 minutes on foot to get to where he works from 6am until 1pm.

He is requesting this loan from CrediCampo to buy 7 bags of fertilizers, insecticides and foliar fertilizers, 2 bags of seeds, rent for the land, and to pay day labor. With this loan he hopes to buy the supplies needed to better manage his parcel where he plants corn. He sells the harvest in the market to obtain an income to cover some of the household needs like clothing for his children.
