Edward's story

Edward is a 39 years old man married to Brenda with four children aged 15, 12, 9 and 4. He is a rice farmer for 15 years now. Edward's rice farming is challenged by lack of resources, unreliable markets and unreliable rains in the area. He joined FIFAD program to have access to solar irrigation pumps to help him in harvesting rice three times a year and FIFAD will help his business to have access to better markets. He intends to educate his children and provide their basic needs with the profits from the business. The other profits will be used to buy more fertilizer for rice farming to increase yields.
