Edwin and his family live in the city of Cochabamba in the Maica Central community, in his parents' house. His main activity is the production of raw milk which is delivered to a firm that produces dairy products. They currently have 10 head of dairy cattle. Edwin also works at a motorcycle repair shop.

The funds will be used to buy forage for his cows because the price of farm supplies rises during this season.

Among his dreams and goals is to increase the number of cows so that milk production will increase. One of his most important dreams is to finish building his house since his parents willed him a piece of property on which they already have begun to build in order to give him a house in which each of his children can have a bedroom; currently they are quite uncomfortable in their parents' house.
