Edgar De Jesús's story

Edgar is a 35 year old farmer, father of three children who he has raised with a lot of effort. Since he was young he was taught about working the land by his father. Thanks to this today he has crops of coffee, sugar cane, tomatoes and bananas, He takes his harvest to sell in the market of the community where he lives. In this way he can generate the resources he needs to pay for food and sustenance for his family.

In spite of the challenges he faces in the agricultural world, due to the high cost of inputs and the instability of prices for his produce which have produced a crisis in the sector, he has managed to get on with perseverance, drive and the desire to succeed.

The loan he is requesting is to buy various products to protect his crops like fertilizer, insecticides, fungicides etc. This will enable him to obtain better production and get a higher level of profit when he goes to sell.

Edgar dreams of strengthening his business, so he has to struggle to expand his plantings and increase his production to guarantee economic stability. Which would allow him to give his children better education and well-being.
