Henry Emerson
Henry Emerson is twenty years old and he lives in the West of the country in a very humble community. He is very young but he has a house of his own. He lives with his life-partner, Eva, and their 4-year old daughter. Having assumed responsibilities from an early age, Henry has become more creative every day in finding ways of supporting his family. He does not have stable employment. He recently acquired a pick-up truck that he uses every day, from the very early mornings to travel to the regional market and the surrounding colonies to sell fruits and vegetables. He is a definitive optimist, responsible and dynamic man. He travels with his megaphone advertising his sales. It has gone very well for him and he takes some routes where his clients wait for him. He wants to be able to satisfy their demand so that he will not have to pass up any opportunity to do business, to acquire better earnings, and to bring home the daily bread. He also has a small savings fund for his little girl, to start her schooling. For all of these reasons he requests the support of Integral (Kiva Field Partner). He will purchase plantains, carrots, onions, tomatoes, squash, cabbage, and bananas in wholesale from the wholesalers market, taking advantage of the better prices.
