Lilian is 33 years old. Her highest level of education is three years of high school. She lives with her partner and has three children. The two oldest go the local school. Her partner works farming and taking care of their cattle.

Lilian has been working as a farmer and cattle rancher for ten years. She learned the work alongside her life partner. Since they were not able to find formal employment, they make their living caring for their crops and animals.

She will use the loan she is requesting from CrediCampo to buy four steers, which she will fatten on pasture. This will help her make a profit for her family's daily expenses.

Lilian's goal is to save money so that her children can have an education, graduate and have professional careers. She also wants to pay back the loan in order to always have open doors.

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.
