Luis's story

Luis is a person from the Ecuadorean moorland who has been a farmer all of his life. Luis is married, and he and his wife have 6 children. Luis is known to be a tranquil person who is a cheerful worker and loves his family. He wants to give them everything they need, and for this reason he gets up a dawn every day to work, motivated by his love for his family.

The loan that Luis has requested from Fodemi will be used to purchase pea seeds and tree tomatoes (tamarillos). In addition, he will buy organic fertilizers to maintain the land and his plants. He expects excellent results from this investment, including higher yields and better quality crops.

Luis dreams of buying a harvesting tractor, so that he could produce for the wholesale market and distribute his products to markets in other provinces of Ecuador. Luis has a lot of faith in God, and he knows that faith and hard work will soon put him on a path to success.
