Edmundo's story

Edmundo is originally from the city of Kimbiri. He is 47 years old and he is a hard working man. He lives in a house which he owns together with his wife, Fernandina, 46 years old, and their three beloved children. They live together in the community of Palestina Baja in the district of Kimbiri. Edmundo is a man of great pleasure and he works in his business with great care. His work consists of working the land. He is an agriculturist and he has 4 hectares of land where he cultivates cocoa, coffee, and peanuts. He has been in the business for 20 years and he is well acquainted with the arduous work involved in agriculture. During the harvest seasons he seeks the help of farm hands who help him collect the products. His most profitable plants are the peanuts and cocoa because they are in highest demand by the national distributors. They pay very well for each kilogram which is exported. The problem that he sees with his business is that he is unable to combat the insects that harm the products. In the future he will purchase more land to expand his plantations and to increase production. This is his first loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner). He has the obligation of making his loan payments on time and he is ready to comply if he wants to access another loan. He is thankful to the organization for granting him this loan. With the loan that he requests he will purchase organic fertilizer to fertilize his fields.
