Marco Edsson's story

Marco is a single 42 year old man who is the father of two children aged 10 and 13 years old. Both of them help their father with the house-chores and help him with his work. The three together take care of selling chickens at the Sacaba market. The younger son gets up at 5 am and gets water to boil and has breakfast while his father and brother are found receiving or unloading the chickens for the days' commerce. The three are happy but they miss the mother

Marco recalls that they never had running water and therefore no bathroom. "When I was a child we had no water nor a bathroom but I was inventive and we got used to it". Marco dreams of providing his sons with a better future. He would like them to stay in school and become good men. Marco understands how difficult his work is and thinks his sons should take another route. For this reason Marco is requesting a loan to install water or the bathroom and a wash stand to improve the lives of the family.
