Edison Roberto's story

Edison is an honest, patient, good-humored person who is very responsible in his work. He lives with his mother in Atuntaqui, which is near Otavalo.

He and his mother raise animals such as pigs and chickens, to earn an income to cover household expenses and pay for Edison's education costs. Edison recently requested a loan through Fodemi which will be used to upgrade the pig stye and build a chicken coop. He also will buy white chickens to raise and sell.

Edison's goal is to expand his business and distribute to large companies.
