Edith Margoth
Edith is thirty-eight years old and has three children, aged six, nine and sixteen, who she is raising on her own. She is a strong woman who likes to do right by those around her, and she works hard harvesting potatoes and lima beans in order to provide for herself and her kids. Although her income hasn't always been steady, things have gotten better in recent years, and Edith hopes to take advantage of the upturn by investing in her crops while they are profitable. Her dream is that in a few years, if things continue the way they are, she can expand her trade to animal farming, something which would undoubtedly raise the quality of life for her and her family.
