Americo Edelman's story

Americo is 33 years old and has a 9th grade education. He is married, and his wife cares for their home and three children, who are 11, 8, and 1 year old. Americo has worked in agriculture since he was 10 years old, and he learned it thanks to his parents, who were farmers. Now he alone works in farming and raising livestock at a small scale. The place where he farms is 25 minutes from his home and he travels in a horse-drawn carriage. He gets up at 5 A.M. to begin working on his plot at 6 A.M., and he returns between 2 P.M. and 4 P.M. Americo needs money to buy 1600 kg of foliar fertilizer. His dream is to be able to give his children the opportunity to go to school, and he also wishes to leave them a small plot of land on which to build their homes.
