Edis Margarita's story

Edis did not have the opportunity to attend school. She is married and her husband is a carpenter. She has a daughter who is already an adult and independent.

Edis earns a living farming, which is work she's done from childhood and learned thanks to her father. The plot of land that she cultivates is located close to her home and she works from 6:00 am until 1:00 pm. She needs a loan to buy seeds, fertilizers and herbicides to plant basic grains. She looks forward to earning good profits upon selling her harvest.
