Olson
View original language description ↓
Olson is 20 years old and has been working with his family in agriculture since he was a teenager. He works hard on his agricultural land, which he will inherit from his parents; this will help cover the costs of his university studies. Although he receives support from his parents there are times when the money is not enough due to the costs of various books and homework from the university. The request Olson makes is for the purchase of compost and fertilizers so that his production improves in quality and brings higher profits, which will cover the student costs. It is very difficult to work and study at the same time, but this does not matter to Olson because his biggest wish is to finish his schooling. Help this young student improve his agricultural products.
