Wilson De Jesus's story

Wilson de Jesús is a man who emigrated from his town in search of a better life alternative. Some time ago he had to leave his town to look for better economic stability in the town of Marinilla in the east of Antioquia Department where he saw farming as a possible source of income. He learned farming in this town and since then it’s been his source of income through bean and celery farming. Currently, at the age of 39 and with a home consisting of his wife and two children, Wilson de Jesús seeks to increase his income to improve the quality of life for his household members and a way of doing this is to increase the amount of products he farms. He would like to invest in a new crop of cilantro and for this reason he needs to purchase seeds, fertilizers, irrigation supplies, fertilizers, and wood and wire to be able to fence in his crop and in this way comply with his dream.
