Rolando Ermel's story

Rolando is a hardworking young rural man who lives in the community of Chical. It has a warm, humid climate, and the people there cultivate all kinds of tropical fruits.

Rolando set out as a day laborer at the age of twelve, using his scythe to harvest naranjilla, blackberries, and plantains. With his savings from that work, he and his father planted their own naranjilla crops, and that is now how they make a living.

Rolando wants to continue improving his naranjilla business, so he is seeking assistance in order to buy agricultural inputs for the care and maintenance of his crops.
