A loan of $850 helped to buy manure and pea and bean seeds.


Edelberto's story

Edelberto, 38, works in agriculture. He grew up in the bosom of a rural family and learned the occupation thanks to his father and older brothers. He loves the countryside because thanks to it he’s been able to move his family forward.

He currently lives in a section of Sonsón municipality, Colombia. He leased a lot where he grows creole potatoes, peas, beans and avocados. His greatest dream is to buy the land where he lives because leasing is costly and profits are greatly reduced because of this factor. He wants to be able to offer his family better quality of life guaranteeing better opportunities for his children.

Aiming at making his dreams reality, Edelberto is asking for a loan to buy manure and seeds to increase production levels and generate higher income he’ll use for the down payment on the lot.
