Edgar Esteban
Edgar, 32, lives with his partner and has two children. He is an agricultural grower. At the age of 15 he decided to learn the job of raising chickens. Three years later he began to grow vegetables such as pipián squash, and he currently wants to set up a "pupusa" [stuffed tortillas] business.

He buys all the products he needs in a city in the eastern part of the country because where he lives there is not a specialized store. The profit he earns from the chickens will be useful to him for planting the pipián squash.

The loan he is requesting from Fundación Campo is to start a pupusa business, because they live near a field where there are events every weekend. He also will invest in getting a lot of chickens to raise and in finishing planting the pipián squash.

The investment will help him especially with the lot of chickens. He needs the money to have the new lot ready and make his business a reality (he has been planning it for four months) and to grow the pipián. In addition, of everything he does, he plans to venture into raising laying hens.

El señor Edgar tiene 32 años de edad, esta acompañado y tiene dos hijos. Él es un productor agropecuario, a los 15 años de edad decidió aprender la actividad de la crianza de pollos de engorde, tres años después comenzó a sembrar hortalizas, como pipían y actualmente quiere instalar una pupusería.

Todos los productos que necesita los compra en una ciudad del oriente del país, ya que en donde vive no hay ninguna tienda especializada, la ganancia que obtiene de los pollos, le sirve para sembrar el pipían.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para iniciar con el negocio de la pupusería, puesto que ellos viven a la par de una cancha donde todos los fines de semana hay eventos. También invertirá para sacar un lote de pollos de engorde y para terminar de sembrar la pipianera.

La inversión le ayudara sobre todo al lote de pollos de engorde, porque necesita el dinero para tener listo el nuevo lote de pollos, para hacer realidad el negocio de la pupusería que lo viene planeando desde hace 4 meses y para el cultivo del pipían. Además, de todo lo que hace él piensa aventurarse con la crianza de gallinas ponedoras.
